Facebook announced Monday it’s expanding a tool that allows users to transfer their data to other services. The social media giant will now enable users to transfer a copy of their written posts and notes to Blogger, Google Docs and WordPress.
Facebook has advocated for data portability laws and is using Monday’s launch to illustrate how firmer guidelines around the process could, theoretically, enable a greater, and more secure, flow of data between services.
