Facebook is testing a new tool that allows users to move photos and videos between Facebook and other platforms. The test will initially roll out with support for Google Photos, with plans for other platforms to follow in the coming months. The shift is part of the Data Transfer Project, a joint initiative between Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft seeking to simplify data transfer processes between online services. 

Small businesses that use the Facebook Photos feature like a free DAM will be able to take advantage of the new tool and increase efficiencies when moving assets between platforms. Social marketers will be able to use the new tool to bulk-transfer media instead of manually saving and re-uploading assets.

Experian has launched a new solution designed to help marketers connect online and offline customer attributes to better understand their target audiences.

This slows the team down and makes deadlines for completion unreliable.”
