These changes are part of a larger Data Transfer Project, which aims to make it easier for users to download and transfer data between Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter.
To transfer photos and videos from Facebook to Google Photos, Dropbox or Koofr, select “Your Facebook Information” in settings.
Facebook says it will require users to re-enter their passwords before transferring files, and the data will be encrypted during the transfer.
Beginning today, Facebook is allowing users to export those files to Dropbox and the EU startup Koofr, as well as Google Photos.
Facebook users worldwide have been able to transfer photos to Google Photos since June.
Select “Transfer a Copy of Your Photos or Videos,” enter your password, choose a destination and confirm.
As Reuters notes, a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) hearing on September 22nd will examine the potential benefits and challenges of data portability.
If you’re looking to export photos or videos from your Facebook account, you now have more options.
