Facebook Photo Sync Now Available for Android
Earlier this year, Facebook announced its testing period for a photo sync feature that some of the other competitors, like Google+, have been offering. The feature would grant the user the ability to have his photos automatically synced with a private album on Facebook, the moment they are taken.
Dropbox – the well known online storage provider, has been offering the feature of having your photos instantly uploaded to a folder, as soon as these are taken, since earlier this year. Google’s social network has also been offering a similar function for quite a while. The Photo Sync feature has been now integrated into Facebook.
Upon activating Photo Sync for Facebook, it can upload your existing shots taken with your device, including the future one, for up to 2 GB worth of images, to a private album on the social network. From the PC browser the function can be activated by going to your timeline>Photos>Synced From Phone. When the device’s battery is running low, the Photo Sync will be paused and resumed the moment you plug it in. On Mobile Data it will upload smaller file sizes then when connected to a WiFi network, for obvious reasons. The function can be activated from the Android app by going Account > App Settings > Sync Photos or choose “Don’t sync my photos.”.
