The world's biggest social network seems to think that people aren't sharing enough pictures and so has created a new app that helps users to find even more images to post.

Called Moments, once installed it will work through a smartphone's entire camera roll and, using Facebook's facial recognition software, grab anything that features what it recognises as an image featuring Facebook friends.

The app's default setting is to create a private album that can be used for sharing the discovered image or images simply with those pictured in them.

The idea is that the privately shared album grows organically as both people continue to share new photos through it.

Facebook Moments is available from Monday for both iOS and Android devices.
