Privacy issues aside, Facebook is a popular way for many of my friends and family to share, comment, and now print photos. Yesterday Shutterfly and Facebook connected their intertubes and made it simple to print paper versions of your Facebook photo albums.

Shutterfly’s “Simple Path” process can import a photo album (or selected photos) and auto-magically arrange them by date, groups similar photos, one to three per page. Add some captions, and you’re done. At just $11 for a 20 page 5×7 book you aren’t going to break the bank and you can afford a copy for each grandparent.

You can try out Shutterfly’s Simple Path for free on their website. If you don’t have many photos on Facebook, you can also upload them from your computer, or import them from your Shutterfly account.

They offered me a 5×7 book to review that I will be ordering tonight or tomorrow. I’ll write more about the entire process after I get the book.
