Automatic Enlarge Thumbnail Profile and Album Photos in Facebook

There are times when those small thumbnails shown in Facebook are just too small for you to identify if your friend’s friend is someone you know or not. Instead of clicking on the facebook user link to go to the user’s page and see the bigger profile photo, you can instead install Facebook PhotoZoom, a useful extension available for Firefox and Chrome browser.

After installing Facebook PhotoZoom extension, there is nothing for you to configure or do. Whenever you hover your mouse cursor to a profile picture or album photos, the tooltip will appear with the bigger image in it. If the image that the user uploaded is bigger than the thumbnail, then this plugin will show the full size of the image. Other than that, while viewing the photo album, it would be more productive when you use the Photo Zoom to view the images that you want in bigger size rather than going into the single image view. This allows you to skip the images that you want to see and load saving you time and bandwidth.
