Facebook basically does the bare minimum when it comes to giving you your photos back, and that’s really unfortunate.
Most of us have a lot of photos in Facebook, but don’t actually use that platform as a long-term storage solution. That’s probably a good idea considering how photos are handled on the service, and making the move to something like Google Photos instead is something to consider. Unfortunately the data export tools for Facebook are pretty bad, leaving you with lots of issues when it comes to getting every photo out of the service and over to something new.
But there’s no better time to get this done than now, and we’re going to explain all of the caveats related to getting your photos from Facebook to Google Photos.
