Questions about syncing Facebook photos via odrive


#1

I’ve been asked quite a few times about syncing FB photos/albums via odrive. So I figured it might be best to post here, hopefully I would get more accurate (yet official) answers before answering my readers.

Background: I’m a tech blogger, and I wrote a post (here) about different techniques to back up Facebook photos. So far, odrive is my favorite option and I highly recommend people to give it a try. However, several readers were encountering issues using the app.

Question #1: is odrive able to download all tagged photos and organize them based on yearly order?

Question #2: can I use odrive to extract images posted on a Facebook page (which managed by me)?

Question #3: are you going to have a mobile app that allows users to sync data across multiple devices?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Question #2: odrive does not yet support syncing Facebook Pages, but it is a requested feature:

Question #3: We definitely plan to develop a mobile app. It’s just a matter of resources and priority:

Thanks!
