iOS users will be able to upload their snapshots on Facebook with the help of Photo Sync

Facebook has discovered way to enable the background auto uploads for the users of iOS and they are testing Photo Sync for this purpose. This news has been confirmed from the Facebook and screenshots obtained from the tipster. Photo Sync will allow more photos sharing, and instant uploads.
Photo Sync feature of Facebook can only be enjoyed by the lucky users involved in the test. For you, this feature may not be available on Facebook and it is quite possible that Facebook will scrap out this feature instead rolling it out. However, in either case you will be allowed to go to Photos app at Facebook from sidebar navigation of iOS app or photo section of your timeline (scroll to the bottom). At this area, you may be able to figure out the Photo Sync and enable it.

Photos taken from your iOS devices will be automatically uploaded in the unpublished, only visible for you. From this album you can decide which photo you want to share and post it. Facebook help center is equipped with more detail about Photo Sync feature. By default Facebook uploads the photos immediately after capturing and thus you may require altering it as per your data plan.

Photos are the core driver for the return visits and thus this feature has become a big deal for the Facebook. Users try to take as many photos as possible to share it on the social sites and close the gaps among the social groups. Facebook Photo Sync feature makes manual uploading problem solved and immediately upload photos and you can share them as you want.

Now the major question that why Photo Sync is not available for iOS. This is because of privacy issues. Of course, every picture is not for sharing and that is the reason, Facebook will require to allot complete control to the users. Second reason is the technicality involved. In Android devices it was easy to engineered Photo Sync as developers are allowed to do anything with their phones. On the other hand, iOS devices are quite rigid and will require deep integration and API for launching this feature.

Photo Sync does not pose any serious threat from the Dropbox, as Dropbox is only aimed to back up photos rather than preparing them for posting and sharing. When this feature gets open for everyone, Bump’s Flock will lose differentiation.
