Facebook is now allowing up to 50 users to contribute in one album. This is another great feature that Facebook has recently offered. Every user can add up to 200 photos that can contain as many as 10,000 images in one album. Before users only have 1000 photos that they can add to their own album. 

Bob Baldwin, Facebook Software Engineer says,  “Right now, if you were at a party and there were three different albums created, you might not be able to see all the photos [based on privacy settings], which is kind of confusing and frustrating.”

This new feature can also be use in boosting  engagement in Facebook Groups while preserving memories of group events.

Although this new feature of Facebook is very alike to Google+'s party mode. The privacy settings are of course one of the concerned. That is why you can opt to make these shared albums visible to the public, contributors only, or even with friends of contributors. 

It's already started with few numbers of users, and it will be expanded to all English users before they roll it out internationally. 

What do you think about this shared photo album of Facebook? Hit us a comment below!

All throughout this month of August, Yahoo released a variation of its brand new logo, as par of their 30 Days of Change. However, the final and official new logo will get live on September 4, 2013 at 9pm PT/ September 5, 2013 midnight ET.  

In the post of Kathy Savitt, Yahoo's Chief Maketing Officer in Tumblr, she gave the reason of this campaign, and I quote; 

 “We want everything we do to reflect this spirit of innovation. While the company is rapidly evolving, our logo — the essence of our brand — should too.”

This is the preview of things to come... 

In addition to the brand-new logo, Yahoo! has also released their updated website in their portal that utilized stock background while the weather website used a Flicker photo of your area after you have inputted your location. These newly designed website portals are the following; 

- Yahoo! Sports
- Yahoo! Movies
- Yahoo! Music
- Yahoo! TV
- Yahoo! OMG
- Yahoo! Games
- Yahoo! Weather

Note: You can click the above portal to see the live updated website of Yahoo!

Furthermore, you will notice that each website has new features, which focus on better navigation and information that users are most interested within the forefronts.  It has an aspect of personalization by location base and with your Yahoo profile. 

For sure that many of Yahoo! users will appreciate the shift because it's simpler, updated navigation and has personalized information.

Oh, by the way, they also post each day's new logo. You can check out their twitter, @Yahoo with #dailylogo, check out their Facebook page at and visit for more information.
