Viewing the Photos Page

To find your way to the Photos page, click the Photos link located at the top of your timeline, underneath your name and cover image. When clicked, the link takes you to the Photos page, as shown in Figure 9.4. The top section of the page lists all your uploaded albums, including your profile pictures. The bottom portion of the page lists all the photos in which you’ve been tagged. You can view a specific photo album, which displays thumbnails of the images it contains, or you can view full-size individual pictures just by clicking an image. (You just learned about the photo viewer in the previous section to see enlarged photos.)


Figure 9.4 Use the Photos page to view your photo albums or upload pictures.

To view an album, click the album name. Take a look at a typical album page, as shown in Figure 9.5. Here you can view thumbnail images of the album’s content.


Figure 9.5 You can view an album to display thumbnail images of the pictures it contains.

As with the individual photos you view with the photo viewer window, you can also add comments to an album and find options for sharing it with friends. You might need to scroll down the page a bit to find the links and comment area. Comments are a great way to converse about the picture, the subject, or the experience it represents. Seeing entire conversations unfold in the comment sections of a single photo or album cover is not uncommon.

To share an album with another friend, you can click the Share link on the album page to open the Share this Album dialog box. From there, you can share the album by posting a link on your timeline or by emailing a link to a friend.
