How To Find Albums On Facebook

The albums feature on Facebook allows you to organize your collection of photos and videos of memorable moments, times, or places like birthdays, vacations, and even family get-togethers to present to your friends on Facebook.

But how do you view your albums on Facebook?

Quick Answer

To find albums on Facebook, select the ‘Photos‘ option from your profile and then select ‘Albums.’ Here you can view all the albums you created, and if you don’t choose the album option when uploading photos, those photos will appear under ‘Untitled album.’

Album privacy is highly customizable. You can even hide specific albums from friends or make them visible to no one at all. Similarly, you might be unable to view someone else’s hidden albums. Let’s dig into albums on Facebook.
