Facebook‘s photo sharing app Moments was launched last year in June. Facebook has now introduced the Moments app on web which allows users to share a web link to your private album with anyone. Users can access the new feature by either pulling up one of their existing albums or create a new one. They then need to click the three dots at the bottom-right of the screen wherein they will see a new ‘Share Link’ option. The upgraded Moments app has also added support for full-resolution photos and packs a new ‘Favorites’ tab. Now when a user adds a photo into their ‘Favorites’ tab, the photo will be saved in Moments in full resolution within 30 days of upload.

The feature was first spotted by some users in Facebook’s Android app. However, there is no official confirmation about the same. According to a report by Mashable, the feature shows up a little bit down from the top of the News Feed section and curates updates from friends. ‘What friends are talking about’ appears in a small dialogue box, which is roughly the size of an image post. It will show up posts from friends and also highlight the comments received. The feature aims to encourage conversations among users and show missed updates back on top of the News Feed.
