Facebook has a brand new separate app for fans of the social network, and it is known as Moments. Just what will this particular app be able to deliver? For starters, Moments will be able to detect people’s friends in their smartphone camera roll – automatically, now how about that? In fact, this looks to be Facebook’s way of allowing one to share photos in a private manner which they obviously think that it is better to do so.
Released on both the iOS as well as Android platforms, Moments is a standalone app which will organize the photos on people’s smartphones. The very same users are able to share those photos in a private manner with a selected bunch of friends, which means you will keep stuff really, really private, and this ought to allow you to have a gist of who leaks out your personal photos just in case that happens.
Moments will be smart enough to group photos together based on the date and time that they were snapped, as well as the people in them, taking advantage of the same facial recognition technology which also keeps the suggested tagging feature up and running on Facebook’s site. All in all, Facebook is looking at Moments to be a more practical method of sharing photos in a private manner. [Press Release]
