Now You Can Transfer Facebook Posts and Notes to Three Popular Services
Facebook is updating its data portability tool which can now allow customers to send or switch their Facebook posts and notes to third-party features like Google Docs, Blogger, and WordPress.com. The social media platform already allowed customers to switch pictures and movies to different apps like Back blaze, Dropbox, Google Photos, and Koofr. In particular, the software is now called Transfer Your Information, which is designed with “privacy, security, and usefulness” in mind. Facebook notes that customers can change posts, notes, pictures, and movies in six easy steps, and all information is transferred in encrypted form. However, Facebook will nonetheless ask for permission to enter secure information that will not go well with targeted customers.
First of all, customers who need to get started with the software should first go to their Facebook Settings> Click on ‘Your Facebook Information’. Next, customers will discover a sequence of prompts to choose the precise type of knowledge they need to change (submit, notes, images, and movies). The next step is to re-enter your account password, and customers will want to choose the vacation spot, that is, WordPress, Google Docs, and more. However, Facebook would request permission to “view, edit, create and delete only the specific Google Drive files that you use with this application.”
Additionally, the user may need to enable Facebook to “view, create, and edit all Google Docs to which they have access.”However, the big social networks point out that knowledge transferred from Facebook to a third-party application will likely be encrypted. We plan to continue increasing our knowledge and partners sooner or later. “However, the ecosystem we are building to support data portability will not materialize without regulation clarifying what data should be portable and who is responsible for protecting the data once it has been transferred,” Facebook stated in the submission of the Blog.
