Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has been putting a lot of focus on photo sharing in the recent days and in the new update to its app, it is enabling an easy way to organize and post group of photos in smartphones. This feature was already available in its website, where people can post a group of photos and organize them very easily. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has added this capability to its app for smartphones now.

When the user uploads group of photos in Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) app through their smartphone, the app creates a preview for the user. User can then organize the photos by clicking and dragging the photos to different position. This way user can design the way the photos will be displayed in the app. Maximum of 30 photos can be organized by the user through this app update. User will also be able to add tags, captions, descriptions and locations to all the photos in the collage separately. This app gives user complete control of the way they want to order the photos for display in the app.

The recent update to Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) app shows the company’s intention to engage the user more with the photos. They wanted the user to use photos for sharing the stories instead of just sharing them as an album. Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s product manager, Rose Yao talked to ‘Mashables’ about the new update.

“This is a culmination of all the work we’ve done in the last year around storytelling. […] It’s not just about the weddings and big trips. It’s about the silly daily moments, too. I think Facebook is in some ways a proxy for dinner tables. […]It used to be you pulled out your wallet and showed people your latest photos of your kids or your dog. Now you can do this in the moment,” Yao was quoted as saying.

If the user uploads photos in the new way the app asks the user to do, it creates ‘stories’, which is different from the already available ‘album’ in the user profile. These ‘stories’ will not show up in the album though, they will only be displayed in the photos.
