Facebook Images App # 1 – Photo Album Strip

This Facebook application lets you manage & show off your albums on your profile in a more systematic way. You can organize them in categories whatever be the number of albums. You can also hide albums from anyone if you don’t want to share it. This app have multiple styles too. You can also arrange them in single or multiple columns. Te background effect(pastel colors) for images is also very cool. This app has almost 251,530 monthly active users.

Facebook Images App # 2 – Photo Box

This is a very cool app with really cool features. This app lets you tag your images as in Flickr. This is a kind of Flickr for Facebook. The coolest feature about this app is that it provides a stat for the images, showing how many people have visited it or the number of hits. It is not so popular still now but its a great app to try. It has only 281 monthly active users for now.

Facebook Images App # 3 – Photo Finder

Perhaps the most brilliant app in making. How many times did you have to request your friends to tag your face in images that they have used in their profiles? But if you use this app you don’t have to request them again. This app simply scans for images for your face & if it finds a match it tags the image with your name. How cool is that? A very neat idea of face recognition. But it still is the beta mode & fails to do the job quite often. But that doesn’t make it a dull app, we can wait for it to work with its full functionality.

  1. Very informative post. I am not a big fan of facebook neither i am an active user. It will definitely help me when i will take it more seriously.

    • @Ricky,
      Even I am not that active on Facebook, but it is now 4th biggest site on the internet and this post from Soumen is well framed and very informative. Thanks Soumen!

  2. I have got a question about this stalker tracker thing, if I accept it and see who my top friends are, does it send out a notification to these people saying? Because I don’t want those people to know that they are the top friends who interact with me the most… I tried it, but then blocked the application because I was worried those people could see my results…
