Facebook is the top most configured service in SocialFolders. People’s pictures are important to them. Accessing them and backing them up is too. But did you know that you could do much more with SocialFolders for Facebook? Here are 3 smart ways to use SocialFolders with Facebook:
1. Keep an Offline Copy of Every Picture You Are Tagged In
On Facebook, pictures come and go as people can very easily delete them down the road. I don’t know for you, but I’d like to have a copy of all the pictures I’ve been tagged in on Facebook on my computer, where they can’t be as easily deleted.
Thankfully, with SocialFolders it’s very easy to do so! If you log in to SocialFolders, and go into the Facebook settings, you will be able to select what kinds of pictures you want SocialFolders to download to your computer: your wall pictures, your albums, and… the pictures you’ve been tagged in. Mission accomplished.
2. One-click Download Your Facebook Friends’ Albums
Say you went on vacation with a group of friends, but you didn’t bring your camera. Your friends did, though… but they didn’t send you the pictures, posting them instead on Facebook. Downloading the pictures one by one is not an option. Thankfully, SocialFolders gives you one-click download of these albums.
If you go once more in the Facebook settings, you will see a “friends” tab (if you are already logged in, just click here). There, you will find a list of all your Facebook friends. Just click on one of your friends’ name and you will be able to select any or all of his albums for download on your computer.
3. Creating and Uploading New Private Albums
Uploading pictures to Facebook with SocialFolders is very easy. Create a folder in next to your existing Facebook albums on your computer. Drag and drop pictures. Done.
But what if you want a specific privacy control? SocialFolders allows you to specify whether you want the album to be public or private. Public means that your albums will be published with your default privacy setting — often your friends. Private, on the other hand, means that only you will be able to see the albums on Facebook, where you will be able to set more fine-grained privacy controls.
