It is possible to access and export publications made on Facebook
We have seen an attempt by Facebook to get closer to the user in order to promote an image of transparency and greater information towards him. Since it is previously possible to download a summary of what Facebook knows about who uses it, there is now also the possibility to export these reports to platforms such as Google Docs, as well as WordPress.
Users have been asking for this possibility of accessing their data, something that the Internet giant now ends up accessing. It is one of the biggest “victories” for the average user since accessing their video and photo galleries on the social network.
In practice, we can export publications made on Facebook, uploading them later to external platforms such as WordPress and Google Docs. There the user can publish, edit, study or store everything provided by Facebook.
We can export publications to Google Docs or WordPress
Any Facebook user can access the data and export it to both platforms. To do this, simply access the dedicated section, and follow the steps presented. We have three succinct steps to carry out this process and new destinations.
The user can thus download the summary of his data, publications, photos and videos of which Facebook is aware. The download can be made for several platforms, being stored, for example, in Dropbox.
In addition to accessing the collection of photos, videos and user data, we now have another component / vector that the user has control over. Everything you have already posted on the social network, all posts made on the social network.
The new destination applies only to posts or posts on Facebook
“You can download Posts that you have created. You will not be able to download Posts that you have created in a group or on a Page, or that a friend of yours has created.”, As pointed out by the social network in the dedicated section.
To collect data from “posts” or publications, the user being able to choose “All”, or just some. Finally, the destination of this compendium can be Google Docs, or WordPress.
You can find this new option and start the process of aggregating and exporting the posts through the dedicated area, or from the Settings. We should look for the section “Your Facebook information” and start the process indicated.
This same feature is also available through the Facebook app for Android. In both cases the process can take a few hours, depending on the volume of publications made by the user since joining the social network.
In short, it is a new option of control and transparency placed in the user’s hands by Facebook.
