Facebook Unofficially Comes to Google Glass, First Person Photo Sharing Now Possible

May 8, 2013 - Written By Briley Kenney

Alright folks, you can finally put away your pitchforks and stop rioting in the streets Facebook support has finally been added to Google Glass. Unfortunately, the related app is an unofficial offering but it seems to work fine, nonetheless.

Glass to Facebook is a new app for Google Glass that allows you to share content from the device directly with your Facebook peeps. It’s worthy to note that this is the very first third party app to implement Facebook support- as if you were wondering.

Of course, if you happen to have Glass and you want to try out the app then you’ll have to provide it with the proper permissions to access your account. I’m not going to cover the particulars, but if you’d like an in-depth walkthrough you can always visit the source link listed below.

Once the application is set up, it will automatically create a new photo album where all of your Glass related uploads will be deposited. Any photos shared to the platform will show up in the news feed just like regular uploads to the site from mobile or desktop sources. Now we can all rejoice, because I’m sure we’ll see plenty of stylish baby photos and food images as witnessed from a first person view. I always wanted to know what it was like to look at a baby directly!

All joking and sarcasm aside, it’s nice to see Glass functionality being expanded to work with various social networks. For a while, the platform only supported Google+ and as much as we all love it, not everyone uses Google’s social network. This had to happen sooner or later, and honestly it’s better sooner than later.

There’s no mention from Facebook about an official app coming in the future, but we can probably expect to see something. The good news is that Facebook won’t be able to offer ads on the device since Google has banned them from the platform- for now.

If you had Glass, what would be your social network of choice? Are you happy Facebook support has been added to Glass, or upset about it? Let us know in the comments below.
