Color shift happening when posting Fuji photos on Facebook via iPhone

It might sound complex, but it really is not: I download JPEGs from the camera (X100F) to my iPhone using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app, in full resolution and sRGB. When I post the given photo on Facebook, theres a clear color shift towards red (especially in the lighter tones), which quite frankly ruins the skintones, etc. If I copy the very same photo from the iPhone to my PC (for example via e-mail) and post it from there, the colors are correct, as is the jpeg file itself. Does anyone have a similar experience or an idea what could cause this? Since theres no iOS trickery involved (I make sure I am comparing the very same file on both PC and iPhone) and its in sRGB profile already, I dont understand where the color shift is coming from and quite frankly its making it impossible for me to post photos from my phone. Strangely, it it doesnt seem to affect snaps I have taken with iPhone to begin with, only the X100F photos I transfer from the camera. Comparison bellow....

Hi there! 

I'm having a similar issue like yours and finding hard to understand that no one has replied to you before! 

 

I posted a few pics of an event. On the camera and the phone the colours looked nice and great light and saturation of the colours. 

 

Once I uploaded them form my phone (Huawei), the colours and exposure dropped a bit so they didnt look that good on monitors or other phones 😓

 

Really struggling here!

my friend i get a bit of color difference between computer and phone (huawei) too. but i thought it was due to the color bit depth difference between computer and phone screen . so i started adjusting it while processing raw to match the good appearance in the phone screen (since it has more color depth). but if i find a solution ,i will let you know . have a nice day !

i read a few articles now . it says that the issue maybe caused by color spaces . the default color spaces of screens are sRGB , but our camera's can capture images in adobe rgb or prophoto rgb etc.. which has lot more colors than srgb and that data is stored in the image file data. so when a image is transferred to different devices the data in the image file which says it is in adobe rgb or in prophoto rgb is recognized by the device and it's automatically converted to display in the rgb color space of most device screens (there is high end screens which display more color spaces). but while exporting the image or while copying the image or while converting etc....the image data is lost ! which stores the color space information . so when the image file which lost the color space data (which tells the device that it is in adobe or prophoto rgb) , without color space information the device doesn't convert to the color space of the image file before displaying screen , so the displayed image looks bad and color shift's etc... so my guess is the conversion/compression process by facebook in phone and computer is different and one of it is removing the image data from the image file . so test this by taking pictures in camera in "RGB" color space !. let me know the results !. have a nice day ahead to you !
