Instagram has largely escaped the controversies that have bedeviled Facebook over privacy, "fake news", and election interference thanks mainly to Instagram's design as a visual-first social media app.

Instagram will soon let users download all their data. What that means is that users will be able to access all of their messages along with any photos or videos they may have uploaded to the platform over the past few years. Facebook revealednbsp;that its flagship network shares "services, infrastructure and information" with its sister networks, including Instagram and WhatsApp.

"We are building a new data portability tool", Instagram told TechCrunch.

Altogether the company only emphasized that "At a high level, the tool allows you to download and export what you have shared on Instagram". Treasured photos and videos can sometimes get lost in their original form, but now there are few ways to easily access the high-resolution originals if they have been posted on the social network. Now you can simply use Instagram for that objective.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland Athletics
Angels reliever Jim Johnson (1-0) got the win over Treinin (0-1) in a game in which neither pitching staff was very effective. Shohei Ohtani has thrown six ideal innings to begin his first home pitching start for the Los Angeles Angels .

This will enable users to take high-quality photos and videos using the Instagram app. Instagram, however, did not say when it expects to launch the tool. "From a data perspective, it noted, Facebook and Instagram are the same". You can not save the images you have uploaded or posted, nor is there any option to download images that you have liked.

Besides, Instagram has also not clarified whether the photos and videos that its users will be able to download will be in their original resolution or will be compressed.

Of course, Instagram being a Facebook-owned company and all, it's nice to know that they're advanced software can detect yours and your friends faces via their app. It will be interesting to see what the users think about this new development.
