Facebook turns out as one of popular photo sharing services: at least 250 million photos uploaded each day. That’s HUGE. No wonder Facebook seriously pays attention into this feature. This time, Facebook photos get size boost:
Bigger Photos, Faster Loading
Now, the photos you share on Facebook are bigger (720 pixels to 960 pixels) and load twice as fast, giving you quicker access to more detailed images. Photos you’ve already uploaded to your profile will also be displayed at this higher resolution.
Focus on the Photo
After we launched the first version of the photo viewer earlier this year, we received feedback from many of you and have made changes based on it. Today, we are rolling out a more streamlined photo viewer that features a cleaner interface that makes it even easier to enjoy your photos. The light box is now set against a simple white background that puts more of the focus on the photo, and less on the surrounding frame.
