The big boys have updated their platform. The update makes it easier for users to organise and post small batches of pictures via IOS and Android.
The app will now give users a preview of how the images will look, to which they can then rearrange the order of the images. The maximum number of images you can select is 30 and you can captions, tags, locations and other bits and pieces directly from your smartphone.
Facebook are looking to make more of a story out of pictures, rather than bulk uploading to a more traditional photo album. Photos uploaded this way will appear on my photos but will not belong to any albums, adding to the here and now aspect of what’s going on.
A cheeky move to compete with the ever popular Snap Chat? I am not so sure, but I like this new functionality. It works. It’s good. Well done Facebook.
