Facebook Scrapbook, a new dad at Facebook builds a scrapbook for your kids

A new feature in Facebook, introduced on Tuesday, called Scrapbook, can be used to tag and create scrapbook of your kids. It allows Facebook user to pull together the photo of children using a special tag to create and share with others. The optional feature allows only the user to tag and create the scrapbook. If the users want to co-own the the scrapbook, they can also add the partners.

Facebook Product Manager, Dan Barak, a new father got the idea of scrapbook when he was uploading  photos of his own son. In a post in Facebook newsroom, Dan writes that a survey found that 65 percent of parents tagged their partners to share the photos of their kids. Following video explains how it works:

The scrapbook can only be co-owned with only the person who is in a relationship. If you haven’t updated your relationship status, you can only be the person who can edit the tags of your kid.

The tag can be anything from name or any other nicknames.
