Oct 1 2010Oh Goody: Facebook Photos Now 8x Larger

facebook-photos.jpg

Facebook just announced they're jacking up the maximum size of photos you can upload from 720 pixels to 2048. What does this mean? It means your photos can now be 8x as large. Geez, it's not rocket surgery. I had to get my mom to sign me into AOL this morning and even I understand it. There's also gonna be a new and improved photo viewer and easier tagging and uploading as well. Barrel roll! So expect higher-res shots of margaritas and pretty ladies appearing on the Geekologie Facebook page soon. And, if you're really lucky, maybe one day I'll post a picture of my sessy ass. Kidding folks, I'm ugly as sin. One time I uploaded a mirror shot of myself on Myspace and Tom unfriended me. Oh yeah? Screw you and your stupid whiteboard. YOU DON'T KNOW EQUATIONS!

Now they can store your personal info in HD! Hooray for identity theft

sigh...isn't facebook over yet?

Since Facebook can steal you pics for their own use, it makes sense for them to have people upload better quality.

@11: Facebook's not going anywhere for awhile.

It's in desperate need of a Snickers.

And yet it still won't support gif files.

No, but it will inevitably follow the dotbomb lifecycle:
1. new web service is developed
2. becomes popular with kids
3. crosses over into adult populations
4. suddenly seems "relevant" because of (questionable) membership numbers
5. Fortune 100 company buys it for $1 billion
6. some new thing starts at #1 above
7. people lose interest in old thing
8. Fortune 100 company sheepishly admits $1 billion investment now worth $75
9. ???
10. profit

BFD. I'd be more impressed if they didn't JPEG compress the SH*T out of all the photos, or if they actually let me use a PNG format. Eight times largeer, you say? More like 8x more JPEG blocks, and still washed-out colours! Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
