The Facebook Moments photo-sharing app made its way to the web in a limited capacity late last year. The company basically added a link to Moments in the desktop version of Facebook. It’s now doing things properly by giving Facebook Moments its very own website. Users can head over to this website if they want to view online albums that they’ve shared or those that have been shared with them in Moments with their Facebook friends.
The feature set is limited as far as the capabilities beyond viewing albums go. It’s the same stripped-down version of Moments within Facebook.
The standalone website will display the full list of albums you’ve shared and albums that have been shared with you in Moments but the buttons for favoriting or comment on photos inside those albums don’t work.
Clicking on them actually, brings up a pop-up which directs you to download the Moments app on your phone. The website does allow users to create and share new albums, add or delete photos in existing albums.
It remains to be seen if Facebook is going to add more functionality to the Moments website or if it’s going to act as a marketing website for the Moments app. Facebook did acknowledge that it has launched this standalone website but hasn’t shared any plans of what it’s going to do with it down the road.
