There are millions of photos being uploaded everyday on Facebook, and now it seems that the world's biggest social network is looking to improve their quality. A recent story on TechCrunch reveals that Facebook will start to auto-enhance newly uploaded photos starting today on iOS devices.

Thus, users will be able to adjust a slider to control how enhanced the light, shadow, and clarity should be, or revert back to the original shot.

The tool could make it much quicker to post well-lit photos so you can share on the go and get back to what you were doing. Facebook and the other social apps are locked in a battle for photo sharing. To the winner goes tons of engagement. That’s why Twitter just revamped its filtering interface, Snapchat started letting you dual-filter with color filters and its geo-filter titles, and Instagram today added five new filters. Google+ added a similar auto-enhance feature a year ago.

The Facebook app hasn't been updated just yet, but it should be rolling out soon. What do you think about this new feature?

As long as it stays simple (like it seems to be), I think it could be great.
WTBS, there are now going to be a bunch of photos on facebook that don't need to be filtered that will be anyway.
