Microsoft’s Photosynth tool that allows users to transform a collection of images into a 3D navigable space has now “joined the social web and bridged with Facebook. Every synth and pano viewing page now has a ‘share to Facebook’ button,” Photosynth team revealed. “Click it, and you'll get a wall posting that looks very much [like] those produced by every other Facebook-aware app on the Web. Welcome to 2008, Photosynth.” The new Facebook sharing feature added to Photosynth is a part of a minor update delivered to the service on April 16th. “In the update we shipped today we also fixed a few serious bugs that many people had reported. The ‘x’ to delete a synth from the ‘My Photosynths’ page was sometimes missing. It's back now, so it's once again obvious how to delete one of your synths. We tweaked the presentation of ‘zoomed-in highlights.’ We made sure that we never crop any of the parts inside the box you select in the editor. Our forums had a bug whereby postings less than a day old would always show as being written ‘moments ago,’” revealed the Photosynth Team.
