Facebook Photo Sync rolls out

If this sounds familiar, it is because Facebook was testing Photo Sync back in September. It obviously went well, as the functionality is now being rolled out.

At least, it is if you have an Android or iOS device - and you'll need iOS 6 for the latter. All you have to do is enable it. Once you agree to do just that, the Facebook app will then begin uploading your images, up to a maximum of 2GB, to the Facebook site. When new snaps are taken, they can by synced straight away, so your Facebook buddies don't miss a second of your life, any meals you eat and of course, at this time of the year, your Christmas tree.

There are controls if that sounds a little much. The big one is how you choose to sync, Wi-Fi only, data connection or both are the options, but if data limits are low, you probably want to stick to Wi-Fi. You can also choose to turn off the feature and you can delete photos from the private folder that hosts the images if you have a change of heart.

You can give it a go right now, as the functionality is already in the Facebook app. You just need to turn it on when prompted.
