Bottom Line: Facebook is a social platform. It was never intended to be used as cloud storage for our priceless memories. Social feeds compress images for various reasons, not only are there millions of images uploaded to Facebook every day, the feed must load quickly to retain the users attention. Facebook "Albums" are a fun way to look back on life and reminisce, but this should not be our go-to photo storage solution. Modern Photo Solutions is our go-to place for up to date options for photo storage & solutions.
Now that I've educated those who may not be aware of this dilemma we're having with the "digital dark ages"... I'll show you how to increase your photo resolution settings in facebook before you upload your next photo. Keep in mind, increasing settings will only export a decent 4x6 print. Also, Facebook is very clear in it's terms that they are not liable for storing your images.
