…this tweak is unlimited to Facebook’s entirety user-base.
Facebook has discovered a means for its users to preserve every experience they had created while socializing within its platform — accessing these contents is a global feature that rolls out today.
The social media giant adds interesting tweaks to its Facebook, an optional choice that either allows users to archive their previous post/notes or convert the post into a document-like content — sharable with either WordPress, Google Docs, or Blogger.
This tweak is similar to previous “data sharing contents with third-parties” Facebook introduced in the wake of 2020’s pandemic — the intertwined image transfer between Facebook and Google’s Photo. It is worth noting that you are expected to have an active account with any of the document-like apps to access this “data transfer” feature.
This information is private user data and Facebook has made it possible for their users to access the same data they have been storing for ads and other purposes. Go to “Facebook Settings”, “Your Facebook Information” is where this tool is tweaked — here, you can “Transfer a Copy of Your Information.”
An optional dialogue pops for you to either choose WordPress, Google Docs, or Blogger to confirm user data transfer to proceed. Note that this tool is exclusive for users with an active account on these other platforms.
The idea of this feature was introduced in 2018, and several tech companies collided to proceed with an initiative that promotes developing the tool to export data across these companies. This initiative created a mutual link that enables tech companies to process sharing data — the likes of Twitter, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and other tech giants have developed this tool.
Meanwhile, Facebook has previously featured a tweak similar to this tool (with Google) — so, try sharing the contents you created on Facebook via the listed documents-like apps. Exported data will not restrict other users from viewing the posts, notes, or the comments and likes by other users under these transferred contents, according to Facebook.
Facebook accessing this tool contradicts Apple’s beliefs that the social media mishandles its users’ data — and other ill beliefs about Facebook being a bad influence, In line with tech experts familiar with Apple and Facebook diss.
Meanwhile, Facebook aims at being proactive towards regulators’ policy such as Silicon Valley’s California Consumer Privacy Act and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation that requires Facebook to regularly submit its personal information in a vivid worldly format — including several other tech companies.
