"At Facebook, we believe that if you share data with one service, you should be able to move it to another", said Steve Satterfield, Director of Privacy and Public Policy at Facebook. The idea is an internet where eventually, people aren't locked into a single platform and can move their data freely from one service to the next. Now the social media company will let you do just that.

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

We are strong proponents of personal data portability and would love to see enhanced control over personal data online: your data is your commodity, and you should be in control of it.

Starting in Ireland, Facebook will be offering a free tool for exporting your pictures and videos to Google Photos, " based on code developed through our participation in the open-source Data Transfer Project". The tool is then expected to roll out to users in the rest of the world sometime in the first half of 2020.

Facebook says it wants to build practical solutions to data portability that people can trust and use effectively.

Twitter is updating its global privacy policy to give users more information about what data advertisers might receive and is launching a site to provide clarity on its data protection efforts, the company said on Monday (Dec 2).

"That's why we're developing new products that take into account the feedback we've received and will help drive data portability policies forward by giving people and experts a tool to assess".
