Thanks for replying but I want to change via my website user will be chossing any of his favorite image from my gallery and he can make it as his profile picture on facebook

Ah I see. So you want to offer a set of images and some way of connecting with a user's facebook account and letting them set their profile pic to one of your images all through your site?

yes exactly...please help as it is the most interesting part I wanna do

That does sound good :) Not done it myself but facebook offers a fair few integration APIs. Try these; http://developers.facebook.com.iproxy.saverpigeeks.com//docs/guides/web and see if any suit what you need.

I wouldn't know where to start Leo. Someone else might do though. Come back with the solution when you have it done because I'd like to know how it works :)

ha ha ha ......If I had the solution Why would I have to post my problem here

05-11-2010, 11:05 AM
Your plan is to find a solution though so I thought that, when you do, you cold post it back here to help others. That's kinda how a forum works ;)

yeah sure the moment I will find the solution or any good thing I will definitely share with other and helps this forum grow

Thanks Leo. I know that Facebook/Twitter cross-overs are in fashion at the moment and it would be good to know how. If I find a need for it myself and work it out I'll let you know as well :)

Thnks a lot

There's no current way in the FB API to change the profile picture.
Twitter has it, FB not.

05-12-2010, 03:08 PM
how do the "share on facebook" links work? perhaps that could do the trick

It's still Facebook, but it does a complete different thing.

You can do a lot through the FB API, but you cannot currently have a user change their profile pic.
