Facebook has added two new options for the transfer of data from one’s social network. The recent blog post confirms that the users will now be able to move their images to Photobucket and events chart to Google Calendar. For enabling this feature the tool has been “completely rebuilt” to be “simpler and more intuitive”, according to product manager Hadi Michel. He said that the change will bring more clarity to people on what they can move to which platform. It also allows multiple transfers with fine-grain control on the exports or transfers.
This feature is actually a part of the Data Transfer Project. The project is an open-source project developed in collaboration with Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. Facebook users were able to share their photos to Google’s image-storage service along with Dropbox, Blogger, Google Documents, and WordPress. The new feature also addresses the ACCESS Act which aims to enable users to move data between competing platforms. Facebook says that the feature will also ask the government to make better rules about who should be in charge of protecting data when it moves across different services.
