Backup Facebook photo posts to Google Drive in folder IFTTT/Facebook/Photos

This recipe automatically backs up any New photos you add to your Facebook Albums to your Google Drive account (within approx. 15 min.) in the folder IFTTT/Facebook/Photos. Any existing photos you have are not backed up by this recipe. The filename used is whatever caption you type in (where Facebook prompts you to "Say something about this photo") combined with the month, day, year and time when the photo was posted. Make sure that if you are posting a group of photos at one time, that you create unique captions for all of them. Otherwise, the date and time should make each filename unique. And it's a very good idea to regularly check the Google Drive folder listed above to ensure that your photos are being backed up!
