Deerfield, Ill. -- Walgreens on Tuesday announced a new application built into Facebook that allows desktop computer users to print their favorite photos, complete with likes and comments, at any Walgreens location nationwide as part of a feature called PrintWorthy.
With the “Photo by Walgreens” app, Facebook users can print photos that include all the context that comes with a photo on Facebook, including location, description, who was in the photo as well as likes and comments posted by friends.
Considering that more than 300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook every day, there are many PrintWorthy photos out there,” said Jasbir Patel, Walgreens senior director and GMM photo and e-commerce. “By offering printed photos available at any of our conveniently located stores in as little as an hour, Walgreens is encouraging people to use social media images in more unique, memorable ways.”
Facebook users can find the application by searching the terms Walgreens or “Photo by Walgreens” within the social media site and simply authorize the icon “Photo by Walgreens” within their page. Each 5x7 PrintWorthy card normally costs $2.99.
