Where Are My Albums on the Facebook App?

Facebook App

Facebook automatically categorizes your photos for you and names them “Uploads”, “Cover Photos”, and “Profile Photos”. There is also another category teemed “Photos of You”, which include photos where you were tagged in.

The problem with these already-made photo categories is that they don’t include our chosen photos. Hence, Facebook has included another photo category known as “Album” photos. Using the “Album” photos, you can create a customized group of pictures and save whatever images you want in them.

Quick Answer

The “Album” photos are located under the “Photos” section of your Facebook profile account.
