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.
