    We can see three options at the top of the screen under "Device Settings".
    What photo syncing means is that when we take photos on the HTC One M8, it will automatically sync those photos with Facebook. It will put them on Facebook. It won't actually publish them. They will be secret, but they will be on Facebook. Then we can choose if we want to publish the photos. However, they will be synced, so they will be on Facebook. Keep that in mind. Any photo taken will be on Facebook, whether we want it to be there or not. It won't show it to people, but it will be on there.

    However, if we do want our photos to be synced with Facebook, we can choose one of the other two options.
    The first says, "Sync over WiFi or cellular", and the second option is "Sync over WiFi only". Choose whichever option is best, depending upon your data plan.
