New Facebook Moments App: Share Private Moments with Close Friends

by | Jun 17, 2015

Facebook just released a new App called ‘Moments’ that enables you to share photos with your friends.

For all those who for one reason or the other do not want to share their photos, Facebook has released a new app called ‘Moments’. It enables users to privately sync camera roll photos with your friends. Imagine you attending a wedding and several people take the same group pictures with different devices all because after everyone disperses, it’s pretty difficult to get your photos or better still you have them all scattered. Anyway, Facebook has come up with ‘Moments’ helping you share beautiful moments with your friends with less stress, only that we have to download yet another app for facebook, Urgh!!!


Moment’s app helps to group photos by the date and the friends in the photo; afterwards it suggests that you share the photo with each person in the picture. Peradventure, the app omits somebody, you can manually edit and sync photos with the person. What this means is that you no longer have to take the same photos, so many times, with different phones.

The Facebook Moments app is available for Android and iOS. But only to users in the US for now. The app will be rolling out to more countries over time.

I wonder why nobody ever did this earlier. I guess we were all content with bluetooth, BBM, and whatsapp sharing.

I guess we are being contended with WhatsApp and other means, without worrying of the need to download another app just to share pictures.

It’s not particularly a new idea. Suba App readily comes to mind
