Facebook has released a new feature allowing users to contribute photos to a group album, allowing up to 50 users to contribute 200 photos to an album.
The shared albums feature was created by software engineers Bob Baldwin and Fred Zhao during a company-wide hackathon, aimed at innovating new Facebook services.
Previously users could only contribute to their own albums, which had a capacity of 1,000 photos.
With shared albums up to 50 users will each be allowed to contribute 200 photos to the album.
The original album creator will be able to delete or modify photos though each user will retain control over their own photos.
The album creator will also set the privacy settings to either ‘public’, ‘friends of contributors’ or ‘contributors only’.
