Once you activate the feature, photos from your phone will be synced to a private album on Facebook, from here you can choose which photos to share and which to send in a private message. Getting started is easy and no matter which Android phone you're using: Samsung Galaxy S3, Nokia Phone or any other phone. You can set up Facebook photo sync; transfer photos to the web as soon as you take them and then share from there.
