I am sure that you have loads of memory in photos and videos on Facebook as I have too. Before DTP there was a colossal pain to fish out favorite photos, download from Facebook, and re-upload to other online platforms.

A Facebook spokesperson told in April that the “people will also be able to transfer photos to other companies that join the Data Transfer Program.”

Why and what?

There are many reasons that the user wanted to do this. It is always a good idea to take the backup of your data when you decide to quit Facebook for good.

The tool is firmly simple in terms of functionality. In addition, it makes the tool easier and efficient to move files and data across the platform. You can transfer your year’s worthy of childhood photos or bigger size edited school/collage photos and videos from Facebook to popular Google Photos cloud storage services.
