Last fall, Facebook announced some new features for Photos. Among these were a new photo viewer. Now, the company has announced that the new viewer has been rolled out to everybody. 

"We are rolling out the new Photo Viewer to everyone over the course of the next few weeks," says Facebook's Sam Odio. "Now, you can browse more photos faster without having to lose your place in Facebook. Visit the Help Center to learn more about using the Photo Viewer. Check out our Engineering blog for more technical details about how we designed and engineered the new feature."

According to Facebook UI engineer Stefan Parker, "By redesigning the Photo Viewer, users now view over 5% more photos, equating to an increase in roughly a billion photo views every day."

Sounds like the new viewer was a good move. 

Over 100 million photos are uploaded per day, according to the company.
