Facebook is reportedly testing a new background auto-upload feature for iOS photos, reports TechCrunch.

Here’s how Facebook Photo Sync works, at least for those lucky enough to be in the test. You go to the Photos app in the Facebook For iOS app’s sidebar navigation or the photos section of your Timeline and scroll to the bottom. There you may find an option to check out Photo Sync and then enable it, as seen in this photo sent in by tipster YoloFahad (an Instagrammer-extraordinaire). Facebook will then automatically upload photos you shoot to an unpublished album only you can see. From there you can authorize which photos you want posted.

More information on Facebook Photo Sync can be found at the link below. It's unclear when this feature will see widespread availability.

It's all part of the plan!!! Mark Zuckerberg is one of the head guys in the CIA and they want to know EVERYTHING about EVERYONE!! Don't ever use an auto-upload feature; the only people stupid enough to do that opt-in to "Anonymous Diagnostic

People this does not post to a public album it post to a private album Facebook knows you guys are a bunch of pervs and take pictures of your dick.... I have no idea why somebody would keep the picture of there shit on their phone, I mean go ahead send it to a girl that's fine... then delete it because that's the gayest fucking thing ever, like I go looking for something on your phone

I think this is a cool feature as far as copying that's fucking obvious but it's a cool feature not the kind of feature that really needs some kind of patent the patent wars are bullshit all phones devices should all do the same stuff these patents need to go away but their companies and they need to make money not make you happy so let them have war... all it's doing is uploading photos so you have less hassle if you're an avid Facebook user this actually helps the fact that it's private nice but if it's going to upload low-res pics that sucks high-risk I'm all over it but if its low-res that I don't think I'll be enabling this an option for high-res that would be nice for some people... Guys we have to stop bitching about the whole oh android did this already so what I'm a Apple guy but stuff android did its good for them it's a feature that can be used on anything android should not have a monopoly on it neither should Apple I feel that Apple and android don't do anything for us they fight with each other cornering the market on the stuff we need like and want so before you guys go on with your bullshit think about it if Apple gets it guess what you don't if android gets it guess what you don't I have no ill will towards android and I don't think Apple is God I believe android does a bit more I don't need that OS I like my iOS
