You’ve been there before, you went to an event with your friends, took dozens of pictures, promised your friends you will send them the best shots, and then… you never do, and neither did your friends.

Well Facebook knows it is at the centre of our lives now, and the fact is that we share almost everything on the platform, especially photos. And since Facebook already had an advanced facial recognition software, they decided to combine all their knowledge to offer us with an easy solutions to share our photos with our friends: Moments.

If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:

Moments can scan your phones photo album, find your Facebook friends’ faces and then offer you to share them privately with those friends. The pics are then saved to a private photo album on the app that only your and the “tagged” friends can contribute to. In fact, if Moments recognizes more than one face, it will offer to let you share to a group automatically. That way, your friends can also add their own pictures – that do not necessarily include people, like landscapes for example – to enrich the album.


So with Moments, you will get to share your awesome pics with all your friends, automatically, without having them asking you for pics every 2 hours….

Of course, anyone “tagged” – that means facially recognised by the app – can also share the pics to their Facebook or Instagram accounts, direct from the app.

Facebook explained the reasons behind the new app:

When you go to a wedding, for example, there are many people taking great photos throughout the day. You all want a quick way to share your photos with the friends who are in them, and get photos that you’re in back. The same is true for smaller events too, like a kayak trip or a night out.

Moments is already available for both Android and iOS, get it now:
