Today, as reported by Mashable, Facebook is rolling out the capability to share photo albums. This is great news, especially for groups who wish to recall all the fun memories they had.
Previously, Facebook only allows its users to upload images to albums they create, and the upload threshold was set to 1,000 photos. Bob Baldwin, a software engineer at Facebook, says that the new feature will now allowmultiple users, as much as 50 of them, to upload images on the same album, as much as 200 photos each.
The shared albums will also feature three privacy settings: contributors-only, public, and friends of contributors. The album creator, Baldwin says, will have control as to who will gain access to the photos. However, the feature is not available to abumes on Facebook Pages, which is a bit disappointing.
The new feature is now rolling out to a few Facebook users whose language is set to English. A huge-scale roll-out to all English users and international users is coming up next.
