It looks like Facebook has figured out the magic behind automatic uploads on an iOS device. Perhaps more exciting for those hoping to be able to share images on Facebook without any further effort past actually taking the picture, the company has reportedly begun testing the feature. So far it appears as if the testing is being done with a small group of iOS users, however it is being touted as Photo Syncing. Screen captures coming from a tipster using the set-up show that the photo syncing means you can “get the photos in your camera roll to Facebook automatically.” And for those who are worried about privacy, rest assured in knowing that those uploaded photos will remain private “until you choose to share.” Bottom line here, this sort of sounds like what Google has done with Google+. Now lets just hope that Facebook irons out any issues and rolls this out to any and all that want it. Me personally, given about 95 percent of the images I take on my iPhone end up on Facebook, this sounds like a pretty sweet timesaver.
