This automatically uploads pictures taken with a mobile device to the "Photos" section on Facebook

Facebook is now testing Photo Sync with select iOS users, allowing photos that are taken with iPhones to automatically upload to Facebook

Photo Sync has been available to Android users since September, but Android is also much easier to work with. Developers have a lot more freedom with Android than iOS, and had to work it out before any sort of testing could occur. Facebook was also making sure the privacy end of this feature was sorted out as well. 

When a mobile user takes a picture with their Android or iOS-powered device, Facebook's Photo Sync automatically sends the picture to an album in the "Photos" section of Facebook. This album is private, and can only be seen by the user. The user then has the option to go into that album later and publish any of the pictures they took (as long as they have a Facebook app). 

What's the point of doing this? Facebook thrives on photos, and people are increasingly taking pictures using mobile devices. Photo Sync brings the two together easily. 

Right now, Facebook's Photo Sync isn't available to all iOS users. It's currently in a testing phase, but according to TechCrunch, iOS users can go to the "Photos" section on their Facebook app and find the option to enable Photo Sync.
 
The feature can also be disabled using the Help Center.

the new cloud

Facebook is the new "cloud".... No thanks.

I think the cloud is great and useful (I use skydrive), but I want to use it for the necessary stuff, on demand.

I usually go through facebook and delete mobile uploads that are more than a month old. In fact, they should make an "auto-delete" feature that can run on a schedule.
