Facebook friends have long been a staple of the internet’s social networks, with millions of people regularly connecting via the platform.
Now, a handful of US states are looking to make it easier for users to connect and share photos and videos via their phones.
The Washington Post reports that several states are moving to allow users to create their own profiles on Facebook using their phone’s camera.
This could enable people to share and add friends to their own account, potentially allowing people to build an even larger social network.
But Facebook has been slow to make the move.
Some have criticized the move, citing privacy concerns.
Others have said that people already use social networks for much more important things, such as finding and sharing great content.
