Facebook: How to turn off photo syncing

Facebook released the newest version of their Facebook App for SmartPhones and with it the ability to Photo Sync. Photo Syncing is a opt in service that lets users uploaded upload photos from their iPhones, iPad and Android smartphones and tablets, over Wi-Fi or a cell network. There are many users that might have turned this feature on and then see that it might have been a mistake as photos are being uploaded to Facebook Timeline. The reason for this is that once you use this service, your phone photos are synced into a Facebook album called 'Synced from phone' - this does not mean that photos are showing up on your Facebook Timeline or news feed. You still need to use the check-mark beside each photo before it will be posted to your Timeline or News Feed. If however you are not comfortable with the service you can always turn it off or stop it or disable it. Stopping Facebook Syncing is very easy and can be done in just a few simple steps.
