Facebook launches new ‘Scrapbook’ feature
We all are aware of the fact that Facebook makes a lot of changes to its UI. It focuses on simplifying the work of their end users. This time, it is trying to do something for all the young parents. It is going to launch its new feature called ‘Scrapbook‘ which lets parents collect photos of their babies, toddlers, or pre-teens in a centralized place which they can share with friends or loved ones.
Scrapbook, in other words is a place where the parents can store the pics of their child and access it whenever they want. When these small babies grow up into teens, they can literally look at all the stuff they did when they were small and laugh out loud.
This Scrapbook feature is said to be linked to the ‘About Me’ section of your profile. This means, that if you want to upload pictures of your babies online, you have to first update your profile telling Facebook about your baby. You can also use the scrapbook to privately upload pictures on yourself and your partner. In other words, if you are in a relationship (on FB), you can upload pictures to your account which can only be seen by you and your partner.
Until now, the parents had to tag each other in all the photos of their babies. To reduce this, and create a centralized place for all the pics of their little one, the ‘Scrapbook’ was introduced. Parents can even tag their babies in other persons pictures and get notifications for it.
This feature is said to launch in the USA first. First the website, then iOS and then Android.
