Finally, you can share photo albums on Facebook! Okay, maybe it isn’t that exciting, but now you and all your pals (up to 50) can contribute to a single album. This event-specific feature saves you the trouble of recreating the album within your own profile in order to share it with your friends.

Before you’d have to wait for someone to tag you in a photo, or scan through someone else’s pictures. Now, you can all upload the photos to a central album, available on everyone’s individual profiles.

Creating a shared album is essentially the same as creating any album. After creating the album and uploading the photos, you are given the option of making the album into a shared album. From here you’re given a three-tiered option: public; friends of contributors (think friends of friends); and contributors only (think friends only).

Admittedly, "contributors" doesn’t mean that they are all your friends, but you get the idea.

You can either allow the contributors to invite other contributors, or keep that power all to yourself.

Shared albums are great for events such as weddings, work functions, concerts, festivals, etc. Or any event where the attendees may not all know each other directly, but would still enjoy sharing the photographs collectively, without having to become Facebook friends to do so.
