Easily create a stunning slideshow that you can share on Facebook in minutes
Slideshows and videos are more engaging, more memorable, and more popular than any other type of content on Facebook. The reason is simple: People prefer to see the faces they care about than read about them. So if you’ve got photos gathering digital dust in your phone or computer, take a few minutes to create a beautiful slideshow you can post on Facebook—and let everyone enjoy them.
