Facebook has today announced that it will be soon discontinuing support for photo syncing and instead has asked its users to download the relatively new Facebook Moments application.
The Moments application allows Facebook users to organise photos and also keep them private, as well as providing the ability to quickly share them with friends and family when needed.
When a user shares photos on Moments, the app pushes a message that notifies the receipt they have new photos via the Notifications feed via Facebook and via Messenger. Facebook explains more :
Finally, an easy way to get all the photos of yourself trapped on your friends’ phones. After events, celebrations, trips or just hanging out, it’s no longer a hassle to collect all the photos you’ll want to look back on. With Moments, you can quickly give your photos to friends and get their photos, too.
Here’s the magic: The app groups your photos based on who’s in them and when they were taken. In one tap, you can send your photos to the right friends. Then, friends can add their photos to the moment. Now, everyone has all the photos you took together!
• Keep all your photos organized in one private place
• Send multiple photos at once—no need to text or email individual photos
• Search to find photos of yourself, your friends, places, and more
• Save photos other people send to you on your phone’s camera roll
• Share a slideshow of your moments to Facebook, if you want
The Facebook Moments app is now available to download for both iOS and Android mobile operating systems from their respective online app stores follow the link to Facebook below for links to download the apps.
