Facebook has announced recent enhancements on its Photos division on desktop devices, and an addition of a “save later” feature to its iOS app for Apple devices.
In an effort to develop a far better view on each user’s uploaded Photo, Facebook came up with its so-called “a more beautiful view”, which will allow users to browse larger pictures, thinking that its recently increased imaging size is not yet enough to get the best look.
“Now when you click Photos at the top of your timeline, you’ll see larger pictures that fill up the page,” posted Facebook’s Emily Grewal on the social networking site’s Newsroom on Monday.
Grewal added that the update will allow users to browse through its options and enable them to search for photos they are tagged in, pictures they’ve shared, as well as albums they’ve created, in “a more enjoyable” user experience.
Meanwhile, the recent modifications are yet to be released internationally, as Grewal said that the firm is still on the process of looking for more ways to improve its use.
In addition to Facebook’s Photo update, the firm has also unveiled a new feature called “save for later” in its iOS app, allowing users to save all posts found in their news feeds for later viewing. This will give users the opportunity to look up repeatedly on posts for review, and will be suitable for users who have a numerous lists of friends and many posts to read but do not have enough time to browse each one.
The iOS update works by holding a finger down on the posts until such time that a pop-up message that says “save” comes out. On the event that the save option is clicked, the corresponding posts will automatically be copied and slid into a Save folder located below the Facebook app sidebar. The user will now be able to retrieve the saved post for review.
An iPhone and iPad user should expect a notification on the new feature’s release soon in their news feeds by the time it is released and becomes available.
However, Facebook was not able to state if the “save for later” feature will also be accessible through Android devices.
It is not surprising how Facebook, the world’s largest social network, can easily come up with new features and applications to its still popular networking site, given its highly trained programmers and in-house talents.
