Facebook will release a tool to transfer files from social networks to Google Photos

Facebook will soon allow users to bulk-export their media to other platforms.

First of all, the company will integrate with Google Photos.

In honor of what

A new feature will allow you to transfer your photosand videos from Facebook to other online platforms. The move is part of the Data Transfer Project, an agreement between Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter to make it easier to transfer data between services. Previously, all files had to be first saved to disk and then uploaded to the desired site one at a time.

Thus, Facebook is preparing in advance forsigning the law on data portability. This legislation is being pushed by several US senators and aims to force large companies to provide the ability to move their data from one platform to another. In addition, according to the latest amendments to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the ability to transfer information should extend to other data, such as history, personal preferences, and others. The new rules will contribute to the demonopolization of the market, making life easier for smaller companies, as well as users, since it will become easier for them to change one or another service.
