Currently, Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world. In the fourth quarter of 2015 they surpassed 1.5 billion monthly active users. Together, these users have uploaded over 250 billion photos to Facebook, an average of 217 each. Users, however, do not have the ability to back these pictures up. To solve this problem, we created Snag Tagged. Snag Tagged is a website that allows users to download all of their pictures off of Facebook. The website utilizes Facebook’s Graph API to authenticate users and query Facebook for their pictures. The website is hosted through Amazon Web Services and utilizes open source software to run the web server. In this report, we document the website as well as the process of building it.
