While Facebook does not use a way to auto-merge all your friends, photos, condition updates, check-ins or various other details, you could by hand merge parts of your accounts. All it takes is a little prep work and patience. Regrettably, you won't have the ability to migrate or re-create all your Data.
Merge Facebook Profiles
Mass Download Data
As a first step I advise to bulk download your Facebook Data, a treatment I have actually defined previously. This treatment could take a while and also the archive will certainly work as a minimal backup, must you decide to shut down or erase your account. It will not be of wonderful aid in bring back any kind of Data, however.
Quickly, go to your General Account Settings as well as click Download a copy of your Facebook Data at the bottom.
This will lead you to a web page where you can download your information as well as obtain a copy of exactly what you have shared on Facebook.
Currently do begin your archive on this initial web page. In addition locate where it claims You can likewise Download an expanded archive ... and click the particular link. This will certainly assist you to the Expanded Archive Download page where you will certainly be asked to re-enter your password.
Currently here is where you will certainly require perseverance. Depending upon exactly how big your major and your broadened archive are and also how many other archives are in the queue, this can spend some time. As well as keeping that I imply a few hours.
Note that you should Download both archives, to obtain a complete backup of your account!
When your archive is available for download, this is just what the page will resemble.
Although your very own images are meant to be included in the archive, you need to download your Facebook Photos individually. Not just is this procedure one more back-up, it is likewise a great deal faster and could give you with even more choices.
As pointed out over, you won't be able to Restore or move all your Data and that includes your friends. You need to manually include friends to your brand-new account. However, it is not feasible export your Facebook friends to a third party account and afterwards re-import them to a new Facebook account.
Nevertheless, you can import contacts from 3rd party accounts such as Skype or Gmail. So if you have call details of the majority of your friends on accounts beyond Facebook, you can take a little faster way. Most likely to your new Facebook account and import contacts from any type of supported 3rd party account (CSV files are additionally sustained) through the Discover Friends page.
While you can export your Facebook contacts to Yahoo! Mail, it is not be feasible to re-import them to Facebook. And also get in touches with imported from Facebook will certainly not be included in a Yahoo! CSV data.
I created a different article on ways to support your Facebook calls. Note that only contact information of friends that have agreed to have their e-mail address consisted of in details downloads can be imported into your Yahoo! account.
Restore Account Data
Right here comes the large letdown. There is no other way to upload or otherwise import your archive to Restore or move Data from your old Facebook account to your new one. Whatever you intend to Restore, you need to do it (semi-) by hand or utilize 3rd party tools. Today, the archive merely acts as an individual back-up, nothing more.
So exactly what are your choices? You could re-add your old friends as shown over, re-upload images you downloaded and install from your old account, re-tag your friends in your images, re-join teams you were a member of, re-add Facebook apps, by hand re-do all your individual Settings, including general account and privacy Settings, e.g. secure your Facebook account, add relied on calls, or conceal your personal Settings. I wish I had great information, yet as I claimed before, you can not auto-merge 2 accounts or Restore Data, so you basically start from scratch.
What You Will certainly Shed
You will shed a whole lot! Your entire Timeline as well as Information Feed history will certainly be gone, including posts or photos you were labelled in, locations you checked out, all the Sorts you issued or obtained, or groups you were a member of, all your account as well as privacy Settings, as well as other records you built up with time. Your images and friends are really all you can take with you, whatever else has to be re-created by hand.
Deactivate or Close Your Old Facebook Account.
If you make a decision to shut down or close your old Facebook account, be sure to include your new account as an admin to any type of Groups or Pages you handle. Otherwise you will lose access to them.
When you have actually dealt with admin roles, have actually downloaded and install all your Data, and make certain you intend to completely remove your account, log into the Facebook account you intend to shut, and see the Remove My Account web page to kick off the process. We have previously clarified How To Properly Close Your Facebook Account.
Facebook allows you to Download an archive of your account. However, there is no matching system in position to restore your Data, needs to the account get compromised. Facebook never ever planned to offer a restore function; instead they were legitimately compelled to use a method for individuals to download their Data. Because of this, customers are entrusted nothing but half-baked solutions or unpleasant workarounds, ought to they desire to merge or move accounts.
Exactly what would certainly bother you most if you needed to relocate to a new Facebook account?
