  14. 14
    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.

    Currently, the option is deactivated, as there is a check mark next to "Don't sync my photos"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Look also at the message at the bottom that states, "Synced photos are private until you choose to share them and are available from the web."

    We're gong to choose the middle option that says, "Sync over WiFi only"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    We also have the option to "Sync All Photos" in the middle, or "Only sync new photos"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Press down on the circle on the right-hand side to add a check mark across from "Sync All Photos"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Now, below that it says, "Sync your full gallery"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    If we don't want to do this, and we press down on the circle with the check again, it will remove the check mark
    .
    Then it will "Only sync new photos".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    If we ever want to change this option again, we can by just pressing down on "Don't sync my photos"
