Full-Sized Instagram Photos Invade Facebook

Photo-sharing service Instagram is now enabling Facebook users to view the big picture, announcing that its photos shared via the social network will appear in users’ news feeds at full sizes.

The company announced in a post on its blog that photos shared to Facebook will automatically be added to an album labeled Instagram, and the full-size images in news feeds will include any caption information added by users, as well as links to the public URLs for the photos.

Friends’ Instagram photos can also be posted on users’ timelines, their friends’ timelines, groups, pages, or private messages, using Facebook’s share button.

Finally, users can add previously uploaded images to their new Instagram Photos albums by following these steps.

With the launch of the timeline profile and its visually prominent cover images, the ability to post full-sized photos is a good fit with Facebook’s redesigned profile.

Readers: Do you use Instagram, or any other photo-sharing services, with Facebook?
