How can I add photos to display on my Portal that I don't want shared on Facebook?

This article applies to Portaland Portal TV

You can add any of your Facebook photo albums to display on your Portal, including albums you've set to Only Me under your photo privacy settings.

  • Friends tagged in Only Me posts will receive a Facebook notification and will be able to see the post.
  • Facebook may suggest tags for photos, even when set to Only Me, so make sure to manually remove all tags before finalizing and posting your album if you don't want the photos seen outside your Portal.

You can learn more about selecting an audience for sharing on Facebook on the Facebook Help Center.
