Facebook makes photos even bigger

What Facebook's photos will look like

Photos on Facebook are about to get even bigger, the social network announced on Monday.

According to Facebook, larger photos will now fill up the page more and there will be a menu to find shots tagged in. In the menu users will also be able to see photos that they have shared and albums they have created.

So what's the point? Facebook said it's all in an attempt to make it easier to share the photos.

"With your Facebook photos all in one section, it's simple to show friends your favorites," Facebook said on its blog. "Click the star button to make important photos stand out."

It is believed Facebook is concentrating more on photos because of the visual appeal its competitor Pinterest has.
