Ever since I started using Facebook, I’ve wondered why our uploaded photos always showed in such a low resolution, without the possiblity of enlarging them.
Now, Facebook has begun increasing upload size for photos from the previous 604 pixels maximum size, to 720 pixels, an increase of almost 20%.
I think 720 pixels is still quite low, it should be even bigger than that. But it’s better than before, so lets just appreciate that Facebook finally did something about it.
Older photos does not automatically resize, but new uploaded photos will. The new resolution is not available for everyone yet, it will be gradually be launched for all users over the next few days.
