You can now use your Nintendo DSi to upload photos directly to Facebook using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The Facebook integration with the Nintendo DSi Camera is one feature of a new system update for the Nintendo DSi, which also includes other improvements to the technical features of the console.

The fun image-altering tools available on the Nintendo DSi mean you can now play with them to your heart’s content before uploading them immediately to Facebook to share with friends.
