Ever since Facebook updated its photo tool to take advantage of high-resolution photos, mobile patrons have waited patiently for those larger, clearer images to show up in the News Feed. Today, the company is announcing, perhaps as a preamble to inserting ads into the feed, that photos will be displayed a little more prominently.
Facebook says the photos will appear up to three times larger, and in most cases will take up the entire width of the feed. The move is a sensible transition to the likely onslaught of full-sized Instagram pictures that will come with integration of the mobile apps.
The update will come in the next few days for Android, iPhone and the mobile web.
