Photos of kids, cats and babies are all over Facebook. A new feature called Scrapbook gives proud parents a way organize all those images by giving each beloved kid or animal their own tag.

A Scrapbook will display all the images of your child on one specialized photo page. It features a cover photo and profile pic on top of a grid of their tagged images.

To use the new feature, click on the new Scrapbook option under the Family and Relationships section of your Facebook (FB, Tech30) profile and then add your ankle-biter. Enter their name, real or a nickname, and then chose a relationship: daughter, son, child (if you prefer to keep it gender neutral) or pet. Fill out their birthdate if you like and voila! Start tagging every pic you’ve ever posted of little Jimmy, Tabitha or Sparky.
