How To Use Facebook Shared Albums?

28 August 2013 – Facebook has just lunched the sharing option of photo album that you have uploaded to your account. Do you have enough idea how does it works? or how to use them? If you are looking for the same, here are the steps that you can share your pictures using Facebook shared album option.

You have just got home from a trip to Mt. Everest with your friends, and you all eagerly start uploading your climbing photos to Facebook. The problem is that there are now several albums on Facebook each named “Everest 2013 pictures”. If you want to find that one picture of you making googly eyes at the camera and don’t remember which of your friends took it, you’ll have to scour through those different albums of 100 photos each.

Facebook’s newly-released shared albums feature makes it easy to share pictures with your friends in one album so you all have one common set of pictures. Here’s how to start uploading memories with your friends in one big Facebook shared album.

1. Turn on sharing. If you want to share an existing album, click the “Make Shared Album” button in the upper left corner of the album editing screen. When you are creating a new album, the button will appear once your pictures have been uploaded.

2. Add contributors. Type your friends’ names into the field. If you want more control over who gets to upload pictures to your album, unchecked the box that says “Contributors can add their friends as contributors”.

3. Adjust privacy settings. Unfortunately you can’t be as selective with shared albums as you can with normal albums, with the most restrictive setting being Contributors Only. Click Save to invite your friends as contributors.

How Your Friends Can Share

Contributors can view the album, see who’s contributing and add their pictures by clicking Add Photos. And if you’ve allowed it, they can add contributors as well.

This feature is great for sharing photos from huge events like a school prom or a New Years’ house party. But you can’t share albums for Profile Pictures, Mobile Uploads, Timeline Photos and Cover Photos since they’re special albums with per-photo privacy settings on Facebook .
