    Facebook announced the new shared photo stream feature Monday.

    Facebook announced Monday a brand new feature that will allow multiple users to upload images to the same photo album.

    With shared photo albums the album's creator can add up to 50 "contributors," who can upload their own photos – up to 200 of them – to a specific album. And the album creators can choose to allow contributors to invite others to add to the album or have control over invitations, according to Mashable.

    The new shared album feature also has three privacy settings: public, friends of contributors and contributors only, which gives the album creator control over who has access to the album's images.

    "I think one thing that's really fun about creating products at Facebook is that you're never quite sure how people will use the product in the end," Facebook software engineer Bob Baldwin told Mashable. Baldwin headed the project with colleague Fred Zhao.

    Facebook began rolling out the new feature to small groups of English users on Monday.
