How to export your Facebook posts using the tool to transfer your information

Written by admin

Facebook has introduced a native tool called “Transferring Your Information.” This new solution allows you to export your Facebook posts to Google Docs or even make them part of your blog based on Blogger or WordPress.com. Facebook is trying to make it easier for users to transfer their data to a third-party platform. The tool can be used not only to transfer your posts on Facebook, but also to the notes you have made on the social media platform.

Essentially, Facebook renames its earlier data portability tool as Transfer Your Information and update it allowing users to export posts and notes to Facebook Google documents,, Blogger, and WordPress.com. This is an extension of the earlier scope of the data portability tool, which allows users to transfer their photos and videos available on Facebook to platforms such as Dropbox and Google Photos.

The purpose of the new update is to allow users to easily move their content from Facebook to other platforms. This, of course, will make things easier if you plan to give up Facebook soon, but you don’t want to lose the data you have on its platform.

In this article, we provide a step-by-step guide on how you can export your Facebook posts using the new tool.

How to export your Facebook posts

The steps below are applicable to both mobile and web users of the social media platform. We’ve also provided details on how you can transfer your Facebook posts to Google Docs, although the steps are more or less the same if you want to transfer your posts to Blogger or WordPress.com.

  1. Visit Facebook.com and then go to Settings. You can also go to Settings from your Facebook app after you tap Settings and privacy option.

  2. Now click or tap Transfer a copy of your information option.

  3. Facebook will ask you to enter your password.

  4. Now select a destination by clicking or tapping Choose a destination dropdown list.

  5. Once selected, press The next one button.

  6. Facebook will now start the authentication process and ask you to enter the selected destination. For example, if you have selected Google Docs, you will need to sign in to your Google Account.

  7. Give Facebook permission to edit, create, and delete content at the destination source. This is essentially to allow Facebook to transfer published content to your Google Docs.

  8. In the next step, you will be asked to allow Facebook to view, create and edit your content available in Google Docs.

  9. Facebook will reaffirm the permissions and then return a copy of your info page to the transfer from where you need to click Confirm the transfer button.

Once the transfer is started, you will see the progress of the Facebook page. You can also pause the transfer process if you don’t want to transfer all your Facebook posts. In addition, you will be able to receive all your Facebook posts to your destination once the process is complete.
