Facebook releases new camera app

FACEBOOK has followed up on its Instagram acquisition by releasing a "camera" application that takes Instagram-style pictures that can be shared with iPhones.

The stand-alone application synchs to the leading social network, letting friends consult one another's photos.

The new mobile app "makes using Facebook photos faster and easier" according to product manager Dirk Stoop.

"You'll see a feed of great photos from the people you care about," Stoop said in a Facebook post. "You can swipe to see more of any album or tap to enlarge an individual photo."

The mini-program also let people share many pictures simultaneously instead of having to post them one at a time to the social network, according to Stoop.
