networking site on July 7. This will not affect the images and videos users shared via Facebook. Now, the company has kick-started phasing out this particular feature in its effort to lure Facebook users to try out its Moments app.
Facebook unveiled in 2012 its app’s photo syncing feature that enables users to instantly synchronize images from their phones to a private Facebook album. The firm wanted users to easily view, edit and share the pictures at a later time if they wanted to. Facebook users can seamlessly share their pictures to their friends and grab their photos as well by means of the Moments app.
People from across the world are madly reacting to Facebook’s forcing users to install Moment app through other social media like Twitter.
If users wish to download synced photos with Facebook, here is what you should do:
Head to the profile page & hit "Photos."
Choose "Synced from Phone" option and select the photos to save.
Click "Options" located at the bottom part of the picture then hit "Download.
It is also possible to download all synced photos simultaneously. What they have to do is to head over to the "Synced from Phone" section under "Photos." Click the link that says "download your synced photos" to save the images.
If you wish to delete their synced photos instead of just letting Facebook do the job, may want to follow these steps:
Head to profile, select "Photos" and tap "Synced from Phone."
Choose the pictures you want to delete, and hit "Delete."

By population, Singapore has the world’s most light-polluted skies, followed by Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates—all densely populated countries. Africa has the dimmest skies; the top 10 least polluted countries are on the continent’.
