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.
