Enhancing the Facebook experience across all mobile device types has become a major focus for a while now. Facebook is the largest image-sharing site on the Internet, and images represent the largest source of data usage on Facebook,” the white paper stated. The average Facebook user’s love for photography is the reason why the social network acquired Instagram and why it continually improves the photo-sharing experience, most recently through the site’s new Shared Albums feature that allows contacts to collaborate and collate images in one album. It is because of this that efforts to optimize photo uploads on the site in terms of resolution and format is in progress, all for the overall goal of efficiency.

The information Facebook provided about the number of photos they house on the company servers is only a small piece of an even more gigantic pie. Everyday, according to the paper, there are over 4.75 billion items shared on Facebook all over the world, including status updates, wall posts, photos, videos, and comments. Additionally, over 4.5 billion Likes are unleashed into the Facebook ether on a daily basis, along with more than 10 billion messages.
