Today at press event, Facebook has announced a new Groups. This groups aim to make things easier and brand social interaction more communal, data portability which sounds like it takes a little of the wall off Facebook’s garden, and application control, which should let you better decide who gets your data.
Here Mashable’s has got it all:
Groups are closed by default (but can be secret or open) and are designed to be spaces where small groups of friends share information, with each group controlled by the entirety of its members — an important new direction for Facebook. The group chat feature is just as it sounds; members can participate in back-and-forth IM conversations with everyone in the group at the same time.
On the data portability front, Facebook has now made it possible to download all of the content and information that you have added to Facebook. This means that you can download your photos, videos, wall posts, conversation threads and status updates.
Ultimately the Facebook update is available in US and for the other users around the globe has to wait. Only thing we can do now is to patiently wait for the announcement. May the update is on the way and when reach will proclaim the news.
