Facebook Groups File-Sharing

facebook_group_fileshareMashable reports that Facebook rolls out file-sharing feature for groups. It is available now only in Facebook Groups for Schools, which can be joined only by users with the valid email address of the particular college or university. In the nearest future, sharing of the files on Facebook will be available for everyone in any group.

File size should not exceed 25 MB as it is in Gmail. One can not upload audio and *.exe files. Everything else is possible: pictures, music, video,e-books etc.

Here’s how it would look like:


Of course, there will be a problem with spam, malicious, inappropriate or copyrighted files, so Facebook will handle it as usual: “users can report files the same way they can with other content across the site”.

In October 2010, Facebook bought file sharing service drop.io, which allowed users to upload and download files without registration. Now it’s time to get profit out of this.
