It seems Twitter and Facebook are fighting out almost every day to bring new features to the users. This can be said as, Facebook has now released a photo sync feature for iOS devices, made available to Android users some time back.
With this feature, users can upload photos taken with iOS devices like iPhone directly to a Facebook photo album. The upload can be set in automatic mode so that as soon as you capture snaps, they get transferred to your private photo album in Facebook.
How Photo Sync feature works in Facebook?
According to Techcrunch reports, the new feature will be useable by navigating to Photos app in the side menu bar of your ‘Facebook app’ installed on iOS device or by going to the photos section in your timeline and move to the bottom.
One will be able to find the option to enable ‘Photo Sync’ there. (Note: This is as per the images sent by some unofficial sources; hence the position of this option could change).
Once photo sync option is enabled, Facebook will automatically load the photos captured on the iOS devices to any unpublished album which is private to you.
Now you can go to your Facebook album and set the privacy options of the pictures displayed. Facebook has ensured that it will load photos to a private album only, thus giving comfort to the users on privacy issues.
Users can also go to Facebook's support site to know more about this feature.
As per the numerous reports, users will be getting around 2 GB of photo storage space too along with this new feature. This feature will help Facebook to nullify the impact of Google+ Instant loader feature which was released some time back.
