Facebook experiences over 300 million photo uploads each day, and today has launched shared photo albums.
Users will now have the option to add up to 50 people as “contributors,” and each contributor can upload up to 200 photos.
This new feature will be great for Facebook users who want to easily group photos around special events or parties.
Privacy options are still built-in, and the creator can make a shared photo album public, only viewable to friends of contributors or just contributors.
Currently, shared photo albums are only accessible via desktop browsers, and rolling out to a small number of English users with international expansion coming at a later date.
The social network had no immediate plans of launching shared photo albums, but a recent hackathon consisting of around 12 engineers helped put the idea into action.
Facebook says it plans on eventually adding mobile support, and increasing the upload limit for each contributor.
