If like me you’re someone who regularly uses Facebook and uploads photographs into albums this is definitely something you’re going to want to take a look at. In short it’s a Facebook connect application being beta tested by Walmart that will allow them to print off any of your images from out of your Facebook Albums.

However there’s no need to panic as my buddy A.J. Wood who from now on will be known as ‘The Protector‘ has it covered 🙂
To quote from his blog:

Thanks to Walter Van Dusen who brought to my attention Walmart is beta testing a new Facebook Connect application. This application allows access to your photo albums for printing. Many photographers have been using Facebook photo tagging as a way to generate word-of-mouth referrals from clients. I would assume a lot of folks have their album security set to “Friends of Friends”. Anyone who is listed with Friends access to your Facebook album will be able to print it via the Walmart application.

Before you decide to delete all your FB albums, it is possible for you to make a quick security settings change. Simply go to the Walmart Photo application and block it. Once blocked your albums will no longer show when someone uses Facebook Connect with Walmart Photo. The application ID on Facebook is 181585006811.

Here’s a quick video tutorial to show you how to block the app:

You can check out more of A.J. and his work here on his company website, Media Cats, his blog and his YouTube Page.

Any thoughts / comments, then as always please feel free to post them in the comments section below,
Enjoy 🙂
