Facebook data tool makes transferring to Google Photos a whole lot easier

It was built as part of the open-source Data Transfer Project - a technology partnership between major social networking and digital companies created to make information hosted on one social media service available on other services. It's available in Ireland now, with plans to roll it out worldwide in the first half of 2020.

In 2018, tech giants joined forces to launch a new initiative called the Data Transfer Project.

The Data Transfer Project is open standard for arranging data in a common format so users could easily move their information from one platform to another.

It also said it planned to include other services in future as part of its commitment to "data portability".

Facebook said in September it supports data portability and is planning to build new tools around it. "We want to build practical portability solutions people can trust and use effectively".

Facebook has allowed members to download their data since 2010.

Once the feature is available in your region, it'll be available in the Your Facebook Information section of your settings.

Privacy and security are key considerations, the social media giant notes, so the data transfer process will involve encryption, and users are asked for a password before a transfer can take place.

'We are now testing this tool, so we will continue refining it based on feedback from people using it as well as from our conversations with stakeholders'.

Facebook users in Ireland will be the first in the world to trial a new service that will enable them to transfer their data from the social network to another online platform.

The open-source Data Transfer Project has been under development for a while, and we are finally starting to see some actual products using the new system.

These include extra authentication steps to ensure only the owner of the account can transfer a file.
