While Facebook does not offer a means to auto-merge all your friends, images, status updates, check-ins or various other details, you can by hand merge parts of your accounts. All it takes is a little prep work as well as persistence. Sadly, you won't be able to move or re-create every one of your Data.
Combine Two Facebook Accounts
Bulk Download Data
As a very first step I recommend to mass download your Facebook Data, a procedure I have described previously. This treatment could take some time as well as the archive will certainly work as a marginal backup, must you determine to shut off or delete your account. It won't be of excellent help in restoring any kind of Data, though.
Quickly, most likely to your General Account Settings as well as click Download a copy of your Facebook Data near the bottom.
This will lead you to a web page where you could download your information as well as get a duplicate of exactly what you have actually shared on Facebook.
Currently do begin your archive on this very first page. Furthermore find where it says You could likewise Download an expanded archive ... as well as click the particular link. This will lead you to the Expanded Archive Download web page where you will be asked to re-enter your password.
Now below is where you will certainly need patience. Depending on just how huge your main as well as your expanded archive are and also the number of various other archives remain in the line, this can spend some time. As well as keeping that I suggest a couple of hours.
Keep in mind that you have to Download both archives, to get a full back-up of your account!
When your archive is readily available for download, this is just what the page will resemble.
Although your very own photos are expected to be consisted of in the archive, you need to download your Facebook Photos independently. Not just is this treatment an additional backup, it is also a whole lot faster and also may give you with even more options.
As mentioned over, you won't have the ability to Restore or migrate every one of your Data and that includes your friends. You should manually include friends to your new account. Sadly, it is not possible export your Facebook friends to a third party account and afterwards re-import them to a brand-new Facebook account.
Nevertheless, you could import get in touches with from 3rd party accounts such as Skype or Gmail. So if you have get in touch with information of a lot of your friends on accounts beyond Facebook, you could take a little faster way. Go to your new Facebook account and import get in touches with from any kind of sustained 3rd party account (CSV data are additionally supported) using the Find 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 certainly not be consisted of in a Yahoo! CSV documents.
I composed a different post on the best ways to support your Facebook calls. Keep in mind that just call information of friends who have consented to have their e-mail address included in details downloads can be imported into your Yahoo! account.
Restore Account Data
Below comes the large letdown. There is no way to publish or otherwise import your archive to Restore or transfer Data from your old Facebook account to your new one. Whatever you wish to Restore, you need to do it (semi-) by hand or use 3rd party tools. Now, the archive simply acts as a personal backup, absolutely nothing even more.
So exactly what are your options? You can re-add your old friends as revealed above, re-upload images you downloaded from your old account, re-tag your friends in your pictures, re-join teams you belonged to, re-add Facebook apps, by hand re-do all your personal Settings, including general account as well as privacy Settings, e.g. protect your Facebook account, include relied on get in touches with, or hide your individual Settings. I wish I had good information, yet as I claimed in the past, you can not auto-merge two accounts or Restore Data, so you basically start from scratch.
What You Will Lose
You will lose a whole lot! Your whole Timeline and also News Feed history will certainly be gone, consisting of posts or photos you were tagged in, places you looked into, all the Likes you issued or got, or groups you were a member of, all your account as well as personal privacy Settings, and any other records you collected gradually. Your pictures and friends are truly all you could take with you, everything else needs to be re-created by hand.
Shut off or Close Your Old Facebook Account.
If you choose to shut down or shut your old Facebook account, make sure to include your brand-new account as an admin to any Teams or Pages you handle. Or else you will shed accessibility to them.
Once you have actually dealt with admin roles, have downloaded all your Data, and are sure you wish to completely remove your account, log into the Facebook account you intend to close, and visit the Remove My Account page to start the procedure. We have previously clarified How you can Effectively Close Your Facebook Account.
Facebook allows you to Download an archive of your account. However, there is no matching system in position to recover your Data, must the account obtain compromised. Facebook never ever planned to provide a recover attribute; rather they were legally compelled to use a way for users to download their Data. Consequently, customers are left with just half-baked services or awkward workarounds, ought to they prefer to merge or relocate accounts.
Just what would certainly bother you most if you needed to relocate to a brand-new Facebook account?
