It’s been some time not that Facebook has been moving some of its biggest features into standalone apps. First came Messenger, and many others followed. Moments, Facebook’s version of Google Photos is the next standalone app in line to get a lot more important and to play a bigger role in our lives.
Not to be confused with Twitter’s Moments (aka Project Lightning) Facebook’s Moments app is where it wants you to organise your photos. A few days ago, the company started announcing to users through notifications, that Facebook will not be supporting photo syncing anymore – and that all backed up images will now be moved to Moments.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
I personally don’t use Facebook’s photo syncing functionality, and I don’t really use Moments at the moment either but this change might just start swaying me in its direction. Google is doing a lot with Google Photos – which I actually find very practical – so I guess we will be seeing a lot more from Moments in the next few months, as Facebook wants to stay ahead of the game, and dominate.
Facebook’s announcement in the notification:
[quote] On Jan. 10, your backed-up photos will move to Moments and photo syncing on Facebook will end. Moments is a new app from Facebook that lets you organize and privately share photos.[/quote]
Have you seen this notification yet? If so, what do you think about the move?
