Facebook rolls out automatic photo sync feature to limited users of iOS app

Facebook has rolled out its automatic photo sync to some users of its iOS application

One feature of Google+ that I enjoyed when I was a heavy user of the service was its application's ability to automatically upload photos I took from my phone without needing me to manually upload them to the service. Taking a shot of something and later seeing it available on Google+ awaiting my approval to publish it saved me a lot of trouble, and it looks like Facebook is working on something similar as it has started testing an auto-upload feature that plans to offer the same experience as Google+.


As of now, the feature is only available to a limited number of Facebook users who will be able to have their photos auto-magically uploaded to a private folder marked "Synched from Phone" which will be located inside the user's Photos page.

No word yet from Facebook when and if the photo synching tool will be made available for all of its users, but we're certainly looking forward to having all of our candid shots make their way onto our Facebook profile in the very near future.
