Facebook has started rolling out shared photo albums to select users of their social network. Currently, photo albums are limited to the user that created it, but shared albums will allow users to create a gallery that can be used by as many as 50 friends, each of whom can upload up to 200 photos. The album will have three privacy settings, which include public, contributors, and friends of contributors.
According to Bob Baldwin, the Facebook engineer that spearheaded the project, the problem with the 'old' way of sharing pictures is that 'right now, if you were at a party and there were three different albums created, you might not be able to see all the photos [based on privacy settings], which is kind of confusing and frustrating'.
The idea for shared albums apparently came from Facebook users and was realized during one of Facebook's company-wide 'Hackathon' sessions.
English-speaking users can be expect to see this feature soon, while those in other countries may have to wait a bit longer.
