Moments follows several recent Facebook made apps that were shutdown due to low usage. A phenomena repeating over an over again and which has resulted in Facebook acquiring Instagram and WhatsApp to ensure it doesn’t lose out in the ever changing Social Media landscape.

Also the fact that Moments didn’t offer anything addtional to any of the existing apps that people were using for this purpose, e.g. Google Photos, didn’t help its cause. The user were presented with an option to continue using what they already know or switch to something else that was same with the hassle of learning it from scratch.

Moments users will have to retrieve their photos from apps

Facebook has set up a dedicated page to help users download their data before the app shuts down. It gives them an option to either create a private album of facebook or download it on the device being used.

You can go to the Export You Moments webpage to download or move your data to Facebook.
