Facebook now lets you transfer posts to Google Docs and Wordpress

• The company's data portability policy isn't totally altruistic.

Facebook's data transfer tool now helps you share your posts, not just the media attached to them. The social network has expanded the tool to let you export notes and posts to Google Docs, Blogger and Wordpress. If you have a thoughtful essay you shared on Facebook, you can put it on another website (or just save it for posterity) with relatively little trouble.

The company isn't shy about some of the motivations behind the expanded transfer tech: this is meant to "help advance conversations" with governments, developers and others about the concept of data portability.
