Likes UP: Facebook Group File Sharing

Facebook Pages and Facebook Timeline have been taking headline news for a while but now Facebook Groups are coming to the forefront.  Facebook is adding file sharing to Groups.

Users can upload most file types up to 25MB — the same file size limit as Gmail. The exceptions: music files (sorry, old-school Napster fans) and executable (.exe) files (sorry, hackers). But e-books, comics, music videos and other small movies are fair game.

Here’s what people are saying:

  • I can see it being useful for PDF’s. But most of my other file / document sharing happens via Google Docs.
  • You can already paste text to create a doc for a Group, so this upload feature would be easier for me with my student Groups.
  • I already use docs in groups – this just gives me more file format options… Google docs sharing is also easy.
  • It’s a rather great idea, but it looks like FB is going to have big competition with Google Docs.
