Whilst Instagram, Color and Path may be getting the headlines as far as photo sharing apps go, it appears that the Facebook behemoth is about to enter the space. TechCrunch got the leaked details, but with Facebook’s massive social graph and sharing/tagging options they may well leapfrog the current competitors and dominate the field.
Facebook already hosts billions of photos on its servers, and has the depth of userbase to have everyone tagging both friends and places in those photos. Now they look to be skipping the whole “upload to your photos to Facebook” step by building a photo app directly. The leaked images of this app shows an iOS app, but Facebook has committed itself to support HTML5, so it will be likely the app will be ported both to Android and as a straight HTML5 app pretty quickly. And if Project Spartan is anything to go by then the pure HTML5 app may offer additional functionality.
