Facebook Replaces Black Photo Viewer, Photos Are Bigger Too

Facebook has been busy this week, making a lot of changes. The latest in line is upgrade in photos.

The first change is related to resolution of photos, which are being shared. You can now share photos that are up to 960 pixels wide (up from 720 pixels) and photos will load twice as fast. Photos that you have already uploaded to Facebook will be displayed at the higher resolution too.

The next change is related to photo viewer, most of you might like it. Facebook has replaced its highly criticized black lightbox with a more pleasing white Lightbox. By moving to from a black to a white background, opening photos from the mostly white news feed should be less jarring. This could reduce fatigue from rapidly dropping in and out of the photo viewer and keep users browsing the site for longer.

    It is displaying my newly uploaded album with very small photos and not the larger display as they claim! My pictures are 3072 x 1919.. Even the older albums are showing smaller pictures than the black photo viewer.
