Sharing large photo albums on Facebook can be frustrating. It's not easy to find the snapshots that really interest you when you have to browse page-by-page.
We decided to make navigating photo albums simpler, easier and more fun. Now, a photo album will automatically display additional photos as you scroll down a single page. You no longer need to click "Next" or try to guess which page number will reveal the best photos....
This new photo browsing experience is one of a series of improvements we're making to browsing, uploading and tagging photos. We've already increased the size of photos. We've also added face detection to make it easier to tag photos on your home page and throughout the site.
Before this latest change, photo albums would display 20 photos per page. Now instead of waiting for pages to load, you're enjoying more photos of your friends and family. You can see as many as 200 right away in an album.
Don't worryâthis won't slow down the browser. We populate the page with more photos as you scroll down. That's similar to how News Feed displays more stories as you navigate down the page.
The thumbnails displayed are also larger, so now you can see more before deciding whether to click to a full-sized image.
