    Here's a cool bit of news for all of our members who use Facebook regularly. Apparently, Zuckerberg and Co. are working on a pretty nifty and useful little feature. It's called, Facebook Photo Sync, and it's basically a way to automatically upload photos to Facebook via your Android smart-device. Here's a quote with a more detailed description,

    There have been third party apps in the market that doing something like this, but small tweaks to the core app are almost always appreciated. What do you guys think?

    It'll save me a step, and I DGAF about the data usage for both G+ and FB syncing up thanks to still holding an unlimited data plan for at least a year and a half still. :)

    Google+ already does this (crap, did it since the beginning) and yeah I can confirm you sometimes forget when you take a picture. Fortunately, (a) I made that particular album private and more importantly (b) I NEVER take pictures of things I DON'T want on the internet. :biggrin:

    But yeah...nobody..uses....Google+ anyway.

    I hate this Auto SYNCH AND PUBLISH my photos, crap. Annoyed me when I accidentally set G+ up to do it and I turned it off.
    I use DropBox to synch my photos PRIVATELY to my PC> I will then upload what I want to FB.

    Another bad FB idea. But nothing can sink the FB ship I am convinced. Constantly doing stuff users HATE yet no one leaves.

    I have tried hard to get my friends on G+... out of 104 FB friends I got 2 to join G+.
    It's hopeless. Never seen a company have such a hold on people before...

    Disappointed my favorite Droid site thinks this is a cool idea...

    So, does this mean they will also fix the issues with Android Facebook?

    I like it with Dropbox and Google+, as it's nice to have access to my phones photos while using my tablet or computer.
