I recorded a speech on my iPhone and would like to share it with some friends on Facebook. Is this possible?

Asked by lillycoyote (24810points) June 15th, 2011

I recorded a speech on my iPhone using their standard voice memo application so I guess I need to transfer it to my computer first then find a way to upload it onto Facebook, most likely via some intermediary site like youtube or photobucket, in some format they would accept or using some intermediary app. Anyway, the basic issue is to get the voice recording transferred from my iPhone to Facebook. How can I do this?

At the very least, you can upload the file to a site like Megaupload.com or Mediafire.com, and then post a status update with a link to the file.

@MyNewtBoobs How do I get it off my iPhone in order to upload it to one of those sites?

@lillycoyote Connect your iPhone to your computer, and open iTunes. There should be a folder that stores all your iPhone files (like music) and while I can’t remember what it is, I’m sure someone will be along to tell you. I think you might have to sync the computer and the iPhone, if it isn’t already set to do that automatically. But then you just find the file, and upload the file on the website same as you would upload a picture for a Fluther avatar. I think it’s easier to temporarily copy a lot of files to the desktop for quick and easy upload finding, but you don’t have to.

@MyNewtBoobs Thanks! I almost never use the voice memo feature and have never had any voice recording I have wanted or needed to get off the iPhone. I use iTunes to transfer music, audiobooks, podcasts etc. onto the thing and it just didn’t occur to me that I could use iTunes to get something off of the thing.

If I were you, I’d convert your voice memo to iTunes, and share via iTunes. Since you’re using an iPhone, all you need to do is plug it in and let the magic of technology do the rest.
