Facebook lets users tag themselves in convention panorama

Facebook wants convention attendees to share every moment in real-time with their friends.

The social networking site brought four "Photo Spots" to Tampa, where convention visitors can quickly upload photos to their timelines without waiting for access to a computer. Attendees can also access photos at a touch-screen monitor at the Facebook workspace in the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Facebook is also monitoring a spike in conversation about the Republican presidential ticket's Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) on the social networking site this week, although Facebook data provided to CNN shows that when President Obama was in Iowa on Wednesday, Facebook chatter in that particular swing state was a lot more "blue" than the rest of the country has been this week.
