If you feel like you don't want to spend much time on Facebook anymore but don't want to lose up to 15 years' worth of shared photos, good news: the company is rolling out a tool that will let you export your image library directly to Google Photos. Facebook announced the new tool in a corporate blog post today. The initiative springs from the Data Transfer Project, a collaboration among Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter to make some data transferable among those platforms.
If you're not keen on putting your images into Google Photos either, there will in theory be other platforms made available in the future. For now, Facebook did not specify what the platforms are, nor did the company provide a timetable.
There has been a download option for years, but a straight migration is new.
