By adding a tool that lets users export their notes and text-based posts to other services. Facebook has made it easier than ever for people to leave the social network without having to delete their content permanently.
People can now move their notes and posts directly to Google Docs, Blogger, and WordPress.It is all made possible with the new “data portability types.” The changes are made to a Facebook tool that lets users copy photos and videos to outside storage services like Backblaze, Dropbox, Google Photos, and Koofr.
They have changed the name of the tool to “Transfer Your Information” to better reflect the different kinds of data that users can now send to the services offered.
Facebook said when making this tool, they thought about how useful it would be as well as how to keep it private and safe. Before the transfer starts, they’ll ask you to re-enter your password, and they’ll encrypt your data as it moves between services, giving you peace of mind that it will be moved in a safe way.
