Facebook launches Facebook Camera

“Today, we’re introducing Camera, a new mobile app that makes using Facebook photos faster and easier,” Dirk Stoop reports fro Facebook.

“When you launch the app, you’ll see a feed of just great photos from the people you care about,” Stoop reports. “You can swipe to see more of any album or tap to enlarge an individual photo.”

“Now you can quickly share multiple photos all at once instead of having to post one at a time. Just select the shots you want to share by tapping the check-mark on each photo and then hit post. You’ll have a chance to add a caption, say where you were and tag friends before you share,” Stoop reports. “It’s also easy to edit photos with new tools like the ability to crop, rotate and add filters to any picture in your camera roll.”

Stoop reports, “Camera will be available for iPhone starting later today.”
