Facebook to launch Scrapbook for parents to share baby photos

Soon your little ones can have their own special pages for all their photos

If you're a parent, you're likely to have done this: tagging your spouse in photos of your beloved offspring in order to share them with your friends and family. 

It's a rising trend that Facebook has taken notice of, and while that's perfectly workable for some, it doesn't collect those images in one place for easy finding, and just doesn't seem special enough at times since you can't actually tag your kid. Soon, that will change. 

To cater to these parents, Facebook is introducing Scrapbook to collate all those baby photos. Unsurprisingly, the whole idea was borne when Facebook's Scrapbook product manager was looking for a way to collate photos of his newborn baby.

As seen in the video above, by creating a Scrapbook profile on Facebook for your child - currently you can only start a Facebook page if you're above 13 years of age -  you'll then be able to tag photos with that profile, collecting all of them in one special place. 

All you have to do is connect your spouse's page to yours via the Family and Relationships tab, set yourselves as parents, and tag away at any existing photos with both of you in them to identify those of your little one. It's all highly customisable, with comprehensive options for tagging and sharing. There's even a way to create Scrapbooks for your pets if you're so inclined.

Of course, the upside for other users is the ability to hide updates from these Scrapbooks should they not want to see baby photos all the time. 

The Scrapbook feature will first debut on Facebook in the US, and will be accompanied by the Scrapbook app on iOS and Android for easy access. Let's hope it comes to our part of the world soon.
