Facebook is increasing the size of photos that people post to its website and making them load twice as fast as before.
Photos will now be 33 percent wider, with a variable height. The last time the company increased its photo size was in March 2010.
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 said the new features will be available to users over the next few days.
