Facebook Announces Rollout of Photo Sync Feature for iOS Users [PICS]
Today we’re excited to roll out photo sync, which makes it easier to share photos. With this feature, photos from your phone sync automatically to a private album on the web. When you want to share these photos, just pick and post your favorites.

How do I start syncing my photos?
You can preview photo syncing by first making sure you have the latest version of the Facebook app installed on your phone. If you have an iPhone, you’ll need to be using iOS 6.
From the app:
1. Go to your photos app in the left side navigation
2. Tap Photos
3. Tap Sync at the bottom of your photos section. Follow the step-by-step instructions.
