Facebook’s Photo Focus Continues With Release Of Iphone App Camera

Facebook continued its focus (pun intended) on photos with today’s release of iPhone application Camera, which aggregates photos from users’ Facebook friends into one feed.

Camera also allows users to simultaneously share multiple photos by tapping check marks next to the photos, as well as to add captions and location information, and to tag friends.

Users can edit photos in their iPhone camera rolls, including cropping, rotating, and adding filters, and swiping enables users to enlarge displayed photos or dig deeper into albums.

The free app is available via the iTunes App Store.

Readers: Is today’s release of Camera the latest result of Facebook’s $1 billion acquisition of Instagram and what seems to be its continued emphasis on photos?
