"really excited for launch because we think people will use [shared albums] in ways that we're not even thinking of".

No Doubt all photos will be carefully vetted

Most likely by the marketing department and i am sure they will flag doggy content under the don't want to look bad for hosting this stuff PR angle.

I admit to trolling a little but at the same time El Zuck should calm down a little. Facebook is not a platform capable of doing everything and anything, which apparently he would like it to do.

I was morever making a jibe at the "in ways that we're not even thinking of" remark... It is one of the most egotistical and false remarks that can be made by anyone.

Obviously the CP remark was going rile up someone.... such is the way with the web these days.....

Why so ? He's adding a new ad platform to his ad distribution network. He's probably going to rake in even more dough before the end of the year because of that. These days, that's probably the only thing that can get him excited any more.

We already have such a photo sharing forum

It's called Flickr. And they don't degrade all of your photos when you upload them.

Re: We already have such a photo sharing forum

No but they do charge if you want to see more than the last 200 photos uploaded last I checked. I do pay and use flickr instead out of general hate of everything Farcebork.

Still playing catch up with google then...

Meanwhile on google plus, you can do this plus have automatic "Event" mode, in which anyone who is coming to the event can enable this, and all photos taken between the two times (of the start and end of the event) will automatically be added to the album....

So that'll be coming to a facebook soon then?

@ DJ Smiley - Re: Still playing catch up with google then...

Just wait until it really is popular. Then it will turn out to have, in the future, already formerly been invented as "iEventShare", an earlier patented way that is new, creative and beautiful!

So let me get this straight...

... it's a service where people join by invitation, and where they in a semi-secret environment can share photos of something they're interested in?

What could possibly go wrong?

What am I missing

A facebook announcement of a feature that could be useful, and seems neither infuriating nor exploitative, and doesn't break existing privacy setting? Surely I have misunderstood.
