Facebook has come out with, yet another, free standing app. The new app, called Moments, is specifically designed for you to share photos with certain friends only.

“Syncing photos with the Moments app is a private way to give photos to friends and get the photos you didn’t take. Moments groups the photos on your phone based on when they were taken and, using facial recognition technology, which friends are in them. You can then privately sync those photos quickly and easily with specific friends, and they can choose to sync their photos with you as well. Now, you and your friends have all the photos you took together.”

Moments helps people share event-specific photos quickly, and makes it faster to find photos you are in by using facial recognition. All the photos are shared privately within the app. Photos are synched directly from your phone’s camera roll to the app. You are also able to download photos from the app to your device.

In order for the facial recognition to work, you have to have Facebook’s tagging capability turned on in the Facebook settings. If your tag setting is set to no one, Moments will not be able to recognize you in the shared photos.
