Facebook is about to roll out a new bulk media data transfer feature. Rather than having to download, save, and upload from the social network to another site, users can simply move multiple items at once.
New Facebook Data Transfer Tool lets Users Move Media to Other Platforms
The move is also an attempt to give consumers more granular control over their media as criticism of tech companies continues to mount over their collection and handling of user data.
Recently, three US senators introduced a bill that forces social media corporations to allow their users to port their data from one place to another. Last year, Instagram, a subsidiary of Facebook, confirmed it would let users transfer their data off the site.
The new Facebook bulk media transfer tool will debut in Ireland, then go global in the first half of 2020. The option will be accessible in setting under Your Facebook Information.
