Facebook will soon automatically grab your iOS photos and post them online
Some users of iDevices might have noticed today a new feat that consists of automatically syncing photos on Facebook from the iPhone, iPad or iPod. Thatís because starting this week, Facebook has began its Photo Syncing campaign for Apple devices.
The feature will instantly and automatically upload every picture that is snapped with the respective iOS device to the userís linked account. The photos will be stored automatically in a folder, that user can choose to keep private or shared publically. Needless to say if you donít like the pictures you can delete them without any problems.
Even if the feature is still in its experimental stage, you might want to find out if you were included in the trial. To do so, check the Photos section located in the sidebar navigation of your Facebook app. If you look at the bottom and you see a Photo Sync option, check it. Everything should proceed from there.
The procedure seems so simple, that some voices are raising concerns about the privacy issues. What if every snapshot you take will end up online? How careful must we be? Apparently, very. The feature can be of course turned off, but we all know how easily it is to forget.
So far thereís no exact date of when the feat will be officially released but as the beta for iOS and Android is being tested, we can only speculate that it will be very soon.
