Attending events, like a party or a wedding always ends up in a Facebook frenzy of multiple photo albums, across multiple profiles and that one good photo pf you always ends up in some randoms album. Well those days are over my friend – Facebook have launched their new “Shared Photo Albums” feature.
The new feature allows multiple users to upload photos to one album.
The album creator can assign 50 people as “contributors”, who all have a 200 upload limit and can allow contributors to invite others to the album or retain total control. Album creators are able to delete or modify any photo, while contributors will retain control over photos they upload.
As always, this new feature raises security concerns around who has access to the album. The owner of the ablum has 3 different privacy settings to choose from.
– Friends of Contributors
– Contributors Only
Bob Baldwin, the Facebook software engineer who spearheaded the project said “Right now, if you were at a party and there were three different albums created, you might not be able to see all the photos [based on privacy settings], which is kind of confusing and frustrating,” “We’re really excited for launch because we think people will use [shared albums] in ways that we’re not even thinking of.”
Unfortunately, this feature is not available for Page albums.
