Linden Labs has expanded the SL Share feature to include Twitter and Flickr! You can now upload and post photos to your Twitter and Flickr feed, post your status on FB and Twitter, etc. This is a marvelous way for SLers to share their SL experiences with others. You can choose your privacy settings for each social media platform, as well as choose the rating. Use this to share amazing places in SL with others, as well as a way for content creators to promote their creations.
You can see more in this video here. I have not yet tested this with Firestorm, but will check it out when I get in world tonight. I encourage current ZoHa Island residents to post photos of their homes and land on Facebook, and follow ZoHa Islands on both Twitter and Facebook. Post your photos and tweets to #ZoHaIslands. Let’s share with the world the wonderful SL world of our residents. 🙂
I remain respectfully yours,

Hot off the SL Blog Presses regarding photo share and Facebook:
Facebook recently contacted us to let us know that the Photo Upload feature of SL Share is not permitted to automatically include location SLURLs in posts made from the application. We’re working with them to get a hotfix out ASAP, but in the meantime the Photo Upload feature in SL Share will not work, as Facebook has temporarily disabled that part of the application. SL Share’s Status Update and Check-In features will continue to work.
When SL Share’s full functionality is restored, SLURLs will no longer be included when you share a picture using Photo Upload, but you will still be able to let your Facebook friends know where to join you in Second Life by using the Check-In feature.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you and are working to get a fix out ASAP. We’ll use this blog to keep everyone posted with any updates and will of course let you know once the issue is resolved as well. Thank you for your patience.
