Data portability made more seamless by FB for users

In April, Facebook introduced two new data portability types that help users directly transfer their posts and notes to Google Documents, Blogger and WordPress.com

As Facebook aims to provide people with choice and control over their data, several updates were announced on Monday by the company to make data portability more seamless for billions of users.

The company said, now via its Transfer Your Information (TYI) feature, it’s easier for people to transfer a copy of their data from Facebook to other services, as Facebook has rebuilt its data portability tool from the ground up.

These updates include user experience improvements, two new destinations (Photobucket and Google Calendar) and one new data type: Facebook Events.

“People can now more easily see what destinations and what data types are supported, along with greater transparency around the status of each transfer, including making it easier to retry certain transfers”, said Hadi Michel, Product Manager at Facebook.

Others updates include the ability to simultaneously start multiple data transfers for one destination and filter that allow people to more precisely select the data they want to transfer.

“We’re also working with developers to expand the selection of data types and destinations we support”, said the company.

However, to ensure user data is safe both while it is being transferred and after, “we’re continuing to call for government regulation to make clearer rules about who is responsible for protecting that data as it is transferred to different services”.

Supporting innovation in data portability across the industry and pushing the technology forward, the updates are part of Facebook’s open source Data Transfer Project.

In April, Facebook introduced two new data portability types that help users directly transfer their posts and notes to Google Documents, Blogger and WordPress.com.

The social network last year enabled people to transfer their photos and videos to Backblaze, Dropbox, Google Photos and Koofr.
