In its heyday, Facebook was the go-to social media platform for anybody hoping to associate with companions online. Nearly everybody people knew had a Facebook account and it was the most effortless approach to interface with new individuals without giving out their phone number. Despite the fact that the numbers propose that Facebook is as yet developing at a steady pace, a considerable lot of everyone has moved away from the platform for others like Instagram or Snapchat. While privacy woes prompted a few clients to simply delete their accounts, the majority of them didn’t take that course so as to save the valuable memories that Facebook so urgently continues helping them to remember each and every day. Presently, the organization has propelled a new tool that will give people a chance to transfer all their photographs and videos to Google Photos, along these lines making it somewhat simpler for them to delete their accounts.
As per an ongoing blog post from Facebook, the new photograph transfer tool depends on code created through the organization’s participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project and will at first be accessible to clients in Ireland. The tool can be found within the Your Facebook Information section in the settings, which is a similar section from which they can download all their data.
Facebook claims that privacy and security are its top priorities with this new tool, so every one of the information transferred utilizing it will be encrypted and clients will be required to enter their password before the transfer is started. The tool is right now in the testing phase and Facebook plans to create it further dependent on input from clients, as well as its discussions from stakeholders. The organization intends to reveal this new tool worldwide in the first half of 2020, after ironing out all its kinks. Starting at now, the tool will just give clients a chance to transfer their photographs and videos to Google Photos, in any case, Facebook anticipates including support for different services later on.
