If you remember, just a month ago Facebook has started “Groups for Schools”. Today it has enabled file-sharing for all the groups.
The largest and the most popular social network in the world, Facebook, is currently offering the feature of sending files to all groups. The feature in question will become available to every user in mere days. Even if you still don’t have access to this opportunity, Facebook can assure you that you’ll have it soon, according to the industry reports.
The first step to file-sharing was made by the social network about a month ago, when they launched “Groups for Schools”. This feature enables anyone with an .edu e-mail address which could be used to share files. Network members are allowed to upload common file types of up to 25Mb, except music files and .exe files. However, Facebook didn’t prohibit electronic books, comics, music videos and other small videos.
Many, especially from the entertainment industry, may wonder how Facebook was going to prevent leaking copyrighted content into the network. But the company had its answer: its representatives claimed that in order to prevent the spread of malicious, inappropriate or copyrighted content, Facebook members will be able to report illegal files the same way they can with other content across the service.
According to the company’s representative, up to date over 380,000,000 people use Facebook Groups, and their most popular request was to enable file-sharing for the groups’ users. Hopefully, we’ll see in a few days what the feature looks like, how Facebook users like what they were offered, and how the creative industry reacts to this update.

|The only reason I opened a Facebook account was to be able to see my daughters pictures of my Grand daughter. Only the bare minimum required to have an account is there. No pictures, No posts, No Personal Info, No need for any other "FEATURE", especially "PUBLIC SHARING". With possibly the shortest list of "FRIENDS" of any member, the email address I used is choked daily with Facebook alerts, friend requests and other "Facebook Garbage". The way I see it, Facebook is for the "Mindless Masses" who have computers and still are wondering "What The [email protected]" to do with them. Since they haven't a clue of the damage they can & are doing to themselves, my suggestion to these "Ignoraneous Morons" is; turn off your computer and get a life before you completely destroy the chance of having a life any time in the future...........|

Just because you haven't learned anything about Facebook yet seem to be proud you have an account, doesn't mean all of us haven't learned anything. I have a Face Book Account, a couple of other accounts at various services AND a life. What I don't have is a full of junk mailbox. Why? Because, I actually know how to use the site and turn off email alerts and other Facebook crap I don't want. Instead of taking 5 minutes to tell all of us how stupid we are, maybe, you ought to learn how to work your own PC. Or maybe take your own advice and turn it off before you "no longer have any chance of a life". You do know you are one of the "Ignoraneous Morons" since you have an account, right? Sign me, "offended by your judgemental crap"
