Facebook Rolls Out Testing Phase for Automatic Photo Syncing to iOS

By November 20, 2012

Follow me on:

A small group of iOS users are getting the chance to see how their photos can be automatically synced and uploaded to their Facebook profiles. Facebook just announced the test, and the lucky users who gained access to the feature will see their photos automatically uploaded to a private folder on Facebook when they use it.

There's a "Sync" option at the bottom of the Photos menu, which starts the automatic upload for a total of 2GB of photos that can be stored. The same testing phase for Android devices was launched in September for a number of select users.

The photos are actually uploaded automatically but remain private until you confirm the ones you want to share publicly. This is probably good to know if you take a lot of terrible bar photos or feel the need to snap 274 photos of yourself in front of a bathroom mirror. You know who you are.
