About JFBAlbum

JFBAlbum is a Joomla Extension for showing your Facebook Albums into your Joomla website. You can show individual albums or a group of albums as a gallery. You can also merge multiple albums into one.

Images are not downloaded to your server. It's goes to viewers browser directly from Facebook's Server. As a result you save hosting space and bandwidth and your user gets fast page load. No more hosting your images on your own server. Use the servers of Facebook instead and show them in your site.

Also you don't need to learn new new interface for image upload. You can manage your photos directly on Facebook with the interface you're already familiar with.
