Facebook users can choose who can view their photos by changing the security settings on each photo album. The user controls the settings to allow only Facebook friends to view the photos, or to customize an album's settings to block certain people from viewing the photos. With a few clicks, the user can change the settings to unblock certain people and allow those people to view the photos. Only the person who posted the photos can unblock the photos.
