"a private way to share photos with friends." It aims to streamline the tedious process of gathering the snaps of a specific event, which usually takes the form of contacting numerous individuals and asking them to send you the photos.The brainchild of Facebook's Creative Labs, the premise of Moments is to offer Facebook users
The Moments app lets you conveniently share your photos with the folks that are in them, and similarly, you can access snaps taken of you. Moments uses facial recognition technology in order to decipher who's in which photo, and from there, forms a private hub for sharing and reflecting.
You can easily share your images to the likes of Facebook or Instagram if you'd like them to reach a wider audience. But the main draw of Moments is that you'll no longer have to chase people for photos after a wedding, a night out, or as Facebook suggests in its press release, a kayak trip.
Moments is a U.S.-only enterprise for the time being, but it is available for iOS and Android right off the bat.
