After introducing hashtags, embedded posts, verified profiles and updated news feed, Facebook hasn t stopped evolving. The social giant is now rolling out yet another new feature called Shared Photo Albums , wherein different users can post photos into a single album, Mashable reports.

Right now, if you were at a party and there were three different albums created, you might not be able to see all the photos [based on privacy settings], which is kind of confusing and frustrating, Facebook s Bob Baldwin told Mashable. Album creators will have the power to delete or modify photos in the album, but contributors will have editing power over photos that they upload.
This feature plans to enhance social interactions and allows up to 50 users to contribute as many as 200 photos each to an album. Mathematically this comes up to a staggering 10,000 photos per album, which is a huge jump, as earlier a user could only add 1,000 photos to a single album.
These shared albums; Facebook says, are no different and will continue to adhere to the strict privacy settings. The album creator will be offered three options Public, Friends of contributors and Contributors only, which should let him control just who all can access the photo album.
As we write this post, the social media giant is steadily rolling out this feature to everyone.
