Anyone with a Facebook account has probably experienced the joy of logging in to Facebook and seeing their News Feed plastered with newly uploaded individual photo albums from friends the day after attending a social event. But for some reason, shared photo albums on Facebook haven't become a thing until now.
Mashable reported on Monday that Facebook users will soon be able to create shared photo albums with up to 50 contributing friends. Each contributor will be allowed to upload a maximum of 200 photos each, meaning that shared photo albums should hold up to 10,000 photos.
Of course, privacy settings will still be manageable on shared photo albums. Albums can be shared with the public, with the friends of each contributor, or just with the contributors themselves.
Facebook has already begun rolling out the new shared photo album feature across English user accounts on Facebook for desktop, and will expand to its roll out to international accounts thereafter.
As of May 2013, it's been estimated that over 200,000 photos are uploaded to Facebook every minute.
