While Facebook does not supply a way to auto-merge all your friends, photos, condition updates, check-ins or other details, you can manually merge parts of your accounts. All it takes is a little prep work and perseverance. However, you will not be able to move or re-create all of your Data.
Merge Facebook Profiles
Bulk Download Data
As a first step I recommend to bulk download your Facebook Data, a procedure I have actually explained formerly. This treatment can spend some time and also the archive will certainly act as a very little backup, ought to you decide to shut down or remove your account. It won't be of great assistance in restoring any Data, however.
Briefly, go to your General Account Settings and also click Download a copy of your Facebook Data near the bottom.
This will certainly lead you to a page where you could download your info and get a duplicate of just what you have actually shared on Facebook.
Currently do begin your archive on this very first page. In addition locate where it states You can also Download a broadened archive ... and click the corresponding link. This will lead you to the Expanded Archive Download page where you will be asked to re-enter your password.
Currently below is where you will certainly need persistence. Depending upon just how large your main as well as your increased archive are and also how many other archives remain in the line up, this can spend some time. As well as with that said I suggest a few hours.
Note that you have to Download both archives, to obtain a complete back-up of your account!
As soon as your archive is offered for download, this is what the page will certainly look like.
Although your very own pictures are intended to be consisted of in the archive, you need to download your Facebook Photos independently. Not only is this treatment one more back-up, it is additionally a whole lot faster as well as could offer you with even more alternatives.
As pointed out above, you won't be able to Restore or move all your Data and that includes your friends. You should by hand add friends to your brand-new account. However, it is not possible export your Facebook friends to a third party account then re-import them to a brand-new Facebook account.
Nevertheless, you can import get in touches with from third party accounts such as Skype or Gmail. So if you have contact information of a lot of your friends on accounts beyond Facebook, you could take a little faster way. Most likely to your brand-new Facebook account and import contacts from any kind of supported 3rd party account (CSV data are likewise supported) using the Locate Friends page.
While you could export your Facebook get in touches with to Yahoo! Mail, it is not be possible to re-import them to Facebook. And also calls imported from Facebook will absolutely not be included in a Yahoo! CSV data.
I created a separate write-up on how you can support your Facebook get in touches with. Note that just contact info of friends that have agreed to have their e-mail address included in info downloads can be imported into your Yahoo! account.
Restore Account Data
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 brand-new one. Whatever you wish to Restore, you need to do it (semi-) manually or utilize 3rd party devices. Today, the archive merely serves as a personal backup, nothing more.
So just what are your choices? You could re-add your old friends as shown over, re-upload pictures you downloaded from your old account, re-tag your friends in your pictures, re-join teams you were a member of, re-add Facebook apps, by hand re-do all your personal Settings, consisting of general account and also personal privacy Settings, e.g. protect your Facebook account, include relied on get in touches with, or hide your individual Settings. I desire I had excellent information, however as I stated previously, you can not auto-merge two accounts or Restore Data, so you basically start from scratch.
What You Will Shed
You will certainly shed a great deal! Your whole Timeline and also News Feed history will certainly be gone, including messages or photos you were tagged in, locations you looked into, all the Likes you issued or received, or groups you belonged to, all your account and personal privacy Settings, and also any other documents you gathered gradually. Your photos and friends are really all you could take with you, everything else needs to be re-created manually.
Shut off or Close Your Old Facebook Account.
If you decide to shut off or shut your old Facebook account, make sure to add your brand-new account as an admin to any kind of Teams or Pages you manage. Or else you will certainly lose accessibility to them.
As soon as you have actually looked after admin duties, have downloaded and install all your Data, and are sure you want to entirely remove your account, log into the Facebook account you intend to close, and also check out the Remove My Account page to start the process. We have actually formerly explained Ways to Effectively Shut Your Facebook Account.
Facebook allows you to Download an archive of your account. However, there is no coordinating system in position to restore your Data, ought to the account get compromised. Facebook never meant to offer a restore function; instead they were lawfully forced to provide a means for individuals to download their Data. Therefore, users are entrusted only half-baked remedies or awkward workarounds, must they desire to merge or move accounts.
Just what would certainly bother you most if you needed to transfer to a brand-new Facebook account?
