While Facebook does not use a means to auto-merge all your friends, photos, status updates, check-ins or other details, you could manually merge parts of your accounts. All it takes is a little prep work and perseverance. However, you will not have the ability to move or re-create all your Data.
How To Merge Two Facebook Account
Bulk Download Data
As a first step I recommend to bulk download your Facebook Data, a procedure I have actually defined previously. This treatment can take some time as well as the archive will function as a minimal back-up, need to you choose to shut down or erase your account. It will not be of wonderful aid in restoring any type of Data, though.
Quickly, most likely to your General Account Settings and click Download a copy of your Facebook Data near the bottom.
This will certainly lead you to a page where you can download your info and get a copy of what you have shared on Facebook.
Currently do start your archive on this first web page. On top of that find where it states You could additionally Download a broadened archive ... and click the particular web link. This will certainly guide you to the Expanded Archive Download page where you will be asked to re-enter your password.
Currently here is where you will certainly need perseverance. Relying on exactly how large your primary and also your increased archive are as well as the amount of various other archives are in the queue, this can take some time. As well as keeping that I imply a number of hours.
Keep in mind that you need to 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 certainly appear like.
Although your personal photos are expected to be included in the archive, you ought to download your Facebook Photos independently. Not just is this procedure one more backup, it is likewise a great deal faster as well as might supply you with more alternatives.
As discussed above, you won't have the ability to Restore or move all your Data which includes your friends. You should by hand add friends to your new account. Unfortunately, it is not feasible export your Facebook friends to a third party account and after that re-import them to a new Facebook account.
Nevertheless, you can import contacts from third 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 can take a small faster way. Go to your new Facebook account and also import get in touches with from any kind of supported third party account (CSV documents are likewise supported) via the Locate Friends page.
While you can export your Facebook get in touches with to Yahoo! Mail, it is not be possible to re-import them to Facebook. As well as calls imported from Facebook will absolutely not be included in a Yahoo! CSV file.
I composed a different write-up on how to support your Facebook contacts. Note that only call info of friends that have accepted have their e-mail address consisted of in information downloads can be imported into your Yahoo! account.
Restore Account Data
Right here comes the large disappointment. There is no way to post or otherwise import your archive to Restore or transfer Data from your old Facebook account to your brand-new one. Whatever you want to Restore, you need to do it (semi-) by hand or make use of third party devices. Right now, the archive merely acts as a personal backup, nothing even more.
So what are your choices? You can re-add your old friends as shown above, re-upload images you downloaded from your old account, re-tag your friends in your images, re-join teams you belonged to, re-add Facebook applications, manually re-do all your personal Settings, consisting of basic account as well as privacy Settings, e.g. protect your Facebook account, add relied on get in touches with, or hide your personal Settings. I want I had great information, however as I claimed previously, you could not auto-merge 2 accounts or Restore Data, so you essentially go back to square one.
What You Will Lose
You will certainly shed a great deal! Your whole Timeline and News Feed history will be gone, including posts or photos you were marked in, areas you checked out, all the Likes you issued or got, or groups you were a member of, all your account and personal privacy Settings, as well as other documents you collected with time. Your images and friends are truly all you could take with you, every little thing else has to be re-created by hand.
Shut off or Close Your Old Facebook Account.
If you determine to shut down or shut your old Facebook account, make certain to add your brand-new account as an admin to any kind of Groups or Pages you take care of. Otherwise you will certainly lose access to them.
When you have actually taken care of admin roles, have downloaded and install all your Data, as well as are sure you intend to entirely remove your account, log into the Facebook account you wish to close, and also check out the Delete My Account page to start the process. We have actually formerly explained How you can Properly Close Your Facebook Account.
Facebook permits you to Download an archive of your account. Nevertheless, there is no coordinating system in position to restore your Data, ought to the account get endangered. Facebook never planned to offer a restore attribute; instead they were lawfully forced to use a means for users to download their Data. Therefore, individuals are left with only half-baked options or uncomfortable workarounds, should they prefer to merge or relocate accounts.
Exactly what would certainly trouble you most if you needed to transfer to a brand-new Facebook account?
