So can we choose what folders to upload pics to? I think its stupid they removed that feature in the first place. I'm also willing to bet this new version sucks. Probably even more than it used to. It's what i've come to expect from facebook for android, and their apparent team of mentally challenged monkeys they have as programmers.
