Facebook has created a new photo-sharing feature that will allow users of the free content ad network to post snaps to an album that can be populated by up to 50 contributors.

Each Facebooker can share up to 200 photos within the album – which means it could contain anything up to 10,000 pictures submitted from a variety of different sources for one specific event, such as a wedding.

Privacy settings loaded into the function allow users to decide how much they want to share with others by selecting "public", "friends of contributors" or "contributors only".

Bob Baldwin, a Facebook software engineer who helped develop the feature, told Mashable that the Mark Zuckerberg-run company was "really excited for launch because we think people will use [shared albums] in ways that we're not even thinking of".

It's currently being tested with a small number of people based in the US on desktops before being rolled out internationally. ®
