Facebook Will Now Let Users Transfer Posts and Notes to Google Docs

As part of its ongoing data transfer push, Facebook is adding more ways for users to manage their user data.

New features include the ability to transfer your Facebook posts and notes from Facebook to Google Docs, Blogger, and/or WordPress.

Facebook said:

“People can now directly transfer their notes and posts to Google Docs, Blogger and WordPress.com. These updates extend the reach of the tool that already enables people to transfer their photos and videos to Backblaze, Dropbox, Google Photos and Koofr. To better reflect the range of data types people can now transfer to our partners’ services, we’re renaming the tool “Transfer Your Information.”

This tools constitute a key component of Facebook’s broader effort to improve data portability, to increase its capacity, and to establish more uniform policies in place.

This would allow Facebook and its users to have clear guidelines with respect to content ownership and reuse of shared data.

They also added:

“We plan to continue expanding our data types and partners in the future. However, the ecosystem we are building to support data portability will not come to fruition without regulation that clarifies which data should be made portable and who is responsible for protecting data once it has been transferred. We hope that today’s updates can help advance conversations with policymakers, developers and experts about these issues.”

Ultimately, it does appear that all of your data will be accessible in some form, under official regulations, with Facebook taking a lead on this. But eventually, it seems that Facebook will take an initiative, pushing for official regulations and rulings.
