I can't figure out how to create a new folder in lightroom to post photos to a new album in lightroom.  When I'm in the publishing manager there are no options under the settings for Facebook album.  Can anyone direct me to figure this out.  Thanks.

    I have been uploading collections for over a year now and until yesterday experienced very few problems.  Starting yesterday I was unable to upload anything.  I kept getting erro messages stating something to the effect of: Can't find the album".  When I attemtped to reauthorize through the publisher it forces me to pick an album which I dont recall having to do before.  Has there been a change with lightroom or facebook in the last couple of days?

    I'm having the same problems as you are having.  This plugin has been such a pain from the start.  I can't Jeff Friedl's facebook plugin to work either.

    I absolutely think this is a FB problem...They must be messing around with their scripts. I'm hoping it will take them a few days and correct it. I have had all of these problems listed above within the past week or so. It used to work perfectly, everything was authorized and would publish flawlessly...then a few days ago, it would publish to FB but I had to start authorizing the publish service for every single post. Then on the next day, I was able to authorize the service with FB but it won't let me pick an album so that I can save my changes. It does however create a new album and put inside FB but it never shows up within the Publish Service Manager in Lightroom.

     

    I'm hoping its a problem like the copyright metadata. Used to...the "copyright" metadata used to be transfered into FB when ever you published a photo from Lightroom into FB...and then FB quit allowing the "copyright" metadata into FB.

     

    Someone let me know if and when they fix this problem! I have gotten spoiled by this service and its screwing up my work flow!

     

    The reason that leads me to believe this is a FB problem, is I really doubt there is something wrong with all of our Lightrooms. I'm running Lightroom 3.6 and Lightroom 4.4 and it's the exact same problem.

    This has been discussed in another discussion also, but I have reported it as a bug

     

    http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightoom_faceboo k_publish_plugin_no_longer_authorises_or_retrieves_albums_or_update_pu blished_collections

     

    I think the more people that tag this as a problem the quicker it "might" be looked at!

    same problem here! No fb album list and therefor no albums to choose from (creating albums works fine, but don't show up in the list in lightroom)

    Got the same thing.  I was able to authorize and publish photos last week. Now I can't get LR to "save" my FB authorization. I have installed the 4.4 version as well.  Neither one will let me publish to FB now!/?

    On Facebook there is a LR page https://www.facebook.com/lightroom?fref=ts

     

    The same thing is being discussed there and the page owners posted this:

     

    https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/400463710068017?browse=search_51b 52555244558d64558608

     

    Seems it is "known" and that Facebook folk are looking in to it.

    Facebook reported the problem as "Now Solved"
    I tried mine and it is now working perfectly again. Facebook seemed to fix the problem! It took exactly 7 days from last Tuesdays update. But it seems to be working fine now.

    Still doesn't work for me!!! Will not authorise, will not create new collections and will not retrieve album lists :/

     

    FB have changed their authorisation API, JF had to amend his plugin because of it and adobe have acknowledged that FB have amended their API and they need to amend the plugin!

    Guys,

     

    the issue is FIXED! not sure about all the Lightroom versions, but just installed version 5.0 and here's what I did:

     

    - In my web browser I went to account settings -> apps

    - Deleted Lightroom app (but KEPT all the activitiy in FB)

    - closed all my web browser windows

    - Opened Lightroom, went to Publish SErvices

    - Reloaded FB plugin

    - Went to my FB settings and clicked on "authorize"

    - Browser window comes up (I made sure to have Internet Explorer as default)

    - Login to FB and authorize access (to everything)

    - Voila!

     

    I just created a new album and uploaded several pictures .... the horror is gone

    try that with two different computer.

     

    FB upload only works for the computer you have authorized FB on last.

    from the other computer no way until you do the same steps again.

     

    but then the uploads from the first computer will not work.

     

    that´s the case.. at least here.

    You can publish to google drive using a plugin by Jeffrey Friedl, then have drive photos automatically available on google+:
