Facebook brings file-sharing to Groups
Highlights
  • Facebook will now become a part of the cloud by offering a file-sharing service to all Facebook Groups.
With cloud storage becoming the next big thing in the digital space, Facebook has decided to join the cloud by offering a file-sharing service to all Facebook Groups.

Speaking to Mashable, the largely popular social networking site revealed that the service will be rolled out gradually over a couple of days.  Most file types of upto 25MB can be uploaded. However, the consumers will not be able to share executable (.exe) and music files.  E-books, comics, music videos and short films are allowed.

Facebook had earlier bought drop.io, a file sharing service that allowed users to upload files, add a drop with file links and share it with others. It wouldn't be surprising to see Facebook incorporate this into their latest file sharing update for Facebook Groups.
