You know when you pose for a group photo and you have to wait for every friend to take a snap with their own smartphone? Well, wait no longer.
Facebook unveiled a new photo sharing app on Monday that enables users to sync photos with their friends so no one has to flash a frozen grin for minutes while the same shot is taken across half a dozen smartphones.
The standalone app, Moments, uses Facebook’s facial recognition algorithms to identify which friends are captured within the picture frame (the same technology is currently used to suggest tags for photos uploaded to Facebook). The user then is given the option of syncing the photo with the selected friends or sharing it more widely across the social network.
