UPDATE 02/04/2018: Looks like AggregateIQ may have had a contract with Cambridge Analytica, but didn’t disclose it because of an NDA… But all spoilt by a unsecure gitlab instance. https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/03/28/cambridge-analyticas-secret-coding-sauce-allegedly-leaked/
I wonder why AggregateIQ state that they have never entered a contract with Cambridge Analytica, but don’t mention SCL. Except they do mention they have never been part of SCL or Cambridge Analytica…

2019 Update: This script now exists with an easy to use GUI
Back in 2016 I wrote a short hacky script for taking HTML from facebook data downloads and adding any data possible back to the image files that also came with the download. I created this as I wanted to grab all of my photos from Facebook and be able to upload them to Google Photos and have Google automatically slot them into the correct place in the timeline. Recent news articles about Cambridge Analytica and harvesting of Facebook data have lead to many people deciding the leave the platform, so I decided to check back with my previous script and see if it still worked, and make it a little easier to use.
