Dan Barak, Facebook product manager and proud father, realized that his photos of his son were getting a little out of hand on the platform. "Over the past few months, I've noticed the more pictures I shared of my son on Facebook, the more scattered they became across my different photo albums. I needed a better way to organize them," he wrote in a Facebook blog post. "And, I found myself tagging my wife in photos of my son so her friends could see them, too."

It's this need to somehow better curate pictures of their children that inspired the Facebook team to launch the new "Scrapbook" feature, which gives parents a better way to archive and build their growing body of photo memories. To use it, parents simply add their children to their profiles under the "About" column. That new profile will bring up a "Scrapbook" feature, which the parent can also share with their spouse or better half. The sharing enables both parents to add more photos of the child to the scrapbook with a designated tag, elminating the need for parents to tag each other whenever they post kids' photos on the site.
