Facebook has announced on Monday that it will roll out a new tool for thumbing through galleries across the site, presenting photos in a new square format with the option to highlight certain shots to increase their visibility on the page.
“Now when you click Photos at the top of your timeline, you’ll see larger pictures that fill up the page. You can use the menu to find shots you’re tagged in, pictures you’ve shared and albums you’ve created.” wrote Emily Grewal, Product Manager at Facebook. “With your Facebook photos all in one section, it’s simple to show friends your favorites. Click the star button to make important photos stand out.”
