Social networking tech giant Facebook announced that it will allow its users to port two types of their data – Facebook posts and notes.
This allows the users to transfer directly to Google Docs, Blogger and WordPress.com.
The company run by Mark Zuckerberg already enables Facebook users to transfer their photos and videos to Backblaze. Dropbox, Google photos and Koofr.
In order to be able to use the new functionality, Facebook users have to re-enter their password before the transfer begins and the data is encrypted before switching between the services.
Users can find this option in Your Facebook Info> Submit Your Info.
In a blog post, Steve Satterfield, director of privacy and public order, said, “We plan to grow our data types and partners in the future. However, the ecosystem we are building to support data portability will not be materialized without a regulation that clarifies which data should be made portable and who is responsible for protecting the data after it has been transmitted. We hope that today’s updates can help fuel the conversation with policy makers, developers, and experts on these topics. ”
