Facebook Gallery Expand

When somebody adds multiple photos in a Facebook post, the gallery is shown in a nice pretty mosaic view on your timeline. If there are more photos in the album than are shown, theres a small "+number" on the bottom right image.

Current Behavior

One might think clicking the "+n" would expand to show more photos in the mosaic. Instead, clicking the "+n" only opens the last photo (red) in the pop up window.

Here's a mockup of what I wish clicking the "+n" button would do: expand the album mosaic to show the additional photos.

Ideal Behavior

Somewhat related to this: I'd love to see Facebook add a filmstrip to the bottom of the photo viewer pop-up window. It makes it easier to navigate through albums by giving you a bird's eye view of the context of the album.

Thanks for checking out this article, I welcome feedback and suggestions in the comments, and feel free to connect with me on Twitter, etc.


Some feature requests I've come up with for Twitter over the years.

A feature request for all platforms, both mobile and desktop to improve the user experience of looking through tweeted photos.

I will continue to populate this page with diagrams of my feature requests for Twitter, but until I do so, here's a collapsed list of the various ideas I have for them. (some of these might not make sense on their own, but they'll make sense when I publish them)
