    This is a really useful list. I never even knew you get whole albums this way. A friend of mine uploaded a bunch of pictures she took of a litter of puppies I was getting ready to sell and I painfully dragged each one off and it took forever.

    Thanks to this post I can say: NEVER AGAIN! :)

    I too noticed that when I joined Facebook recently. The other thing that I noticed is getting updates of people whom you send friend request and they don’t add you.
    I am not sure if its due to lack of action on the friendship request or otherwise. When I visit the profile page, it still shows “Awaiting Confirmation”. I am not sure what should one make out of it.
