Facebook unveils “Moments” Photo Sharing App


Facebook on Monday, 15th June 2015 announced a new standalone app which makes group photo sharing a very easy process. Normally, when taking group photos, the group pose has to last for a while because everybody wants to take photos with their phones. This new photo sharing app enables users share photos with their friends to avoid the long uncomfortable posing for the same shot over and over.

”Moments” uses Facebook’s facial recognition program to identify the friends who are in the photo, then the phone owner is given the option of sharing the photo with the recognised friends or to share it publicly on Facebook. The app is available for free download on iTunes and Google Play stores.
