"Today, we're releasing a tool that will enable Facebook users to transfer their Facebook photos and videos directly to other services, starting with Google Photos," Steve Satterfield, Director of Privacy and Public Policy, wrote in a post.
According to the social networking giant, if users share data with one service, they should be able to move it to another. That's the principle of data portability, which gives people control and choice while also encouraging innovation.
"We are currently testing this tool, so we will continue refining it based on feedback from people using it as well as from our conversations with stakeholders," Satterfield noted.
The "Data Transfer Project" reportedly also includes firms like Apple, Microsoft, Google, Twitter, among others.
Facebook has said it is starting with Google Photos initially but other services could be included in the future.
