Facebook boosts photo resolution, size


by Laura Matovina

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Facebook is increasing the resolution of photos that people post to its website and making them load twice as fast before.

A higher resolution means photos are crisper and clearer to see.

Facebook said Friday that sharing photos is one of the most popular activities on its social network. Users upload more than 250 million photos each day.

Facebook says the new features will be available to users over the next few days.
