There are so much exciting features available on these sites like you can share pictures, videos, text, play games and much more with your friends.
You must have uploaded a picture on your profile page. But all social networking sites have feature to display your images as thumbnails i.e displaying your image in a very small size. Although you can maximize it by clicking on the image, but problem is that you will need to click on every thumbnail which you want to see and other is that clicking generally opens in a new window. So today we will be telling about tool named Thumbnail Zoom using which you can zoom the thumbnail only by putting your cursor over it.
Thumbnail Zoom is basically a add-on to Firefox and this will work only with Firefox browser. As the name suggest, this tool will zoom all the thumbnails. This tool woks on all major social sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Amazon, Picasa, Flickr, LinkedIn and Hi5. Open your Firefox browser and then download this tool.

From options you can customize this tool for which website you want to use. By default it is set for all eight websites but still you can remove any of them, if you want. Under the show panel you will see two options “Immediately” or “After some short duration”. Select “Immediately” if you want to see the zoomed thumbnail as you put your cursor over it and “with short duration” if you want to see zoomed thumbnail after a little duration. Once you done with all the settings, click on ok.
