If someone on Internet asks – can you send files on Facebook, what would be your answer? If you are an active Facebook user and know how to send an attachment on Facebook, your answer will be ‘Yes’ of course. Receiving and sending files through Facebook is a simple thing that can also be done while chatting with your buddies.
In the starting of 2011, Facebook has combined the Message and Chat features and also added some cool things to the combination including File attachment options. Here is a short demonstration showing how to post attachments in Facebook, even when you are chatting with friends:
- Click the Gear icon on top left of your Facebook chat and click “See full conversation“.
- You’ll be brought to that particular chat thread in the messages section. To attach a file, just click the attachment icon just below the “Write a Reply” textbox, locate the file and wait till it finishes uploading. After the attachment upload completes, send it to your friend by pressing “Reply” or just hitting the Enter key if you have enabled the Quick Reply Mode.
Tip: If you have the file available online, just paste in the direct URL to it instead of attaching the one from your computer.
