Continuing their stance of locking up user data, which is completely the opposite of Google with their new “Data liberation” tool, Facebook has blocked the popular “Facebook Friend Exporter” app. The app has been around for nearly nine months, but got a huge influx of new users as people tried to export their Facebook friend list and move it to Google+. Facebook noticed the increased activity and shut it down.
The author of the app, Mohamed Mansour, is already working on tweaks to get it working again. As ZDNet points out, there are other ways to move your data from Facebook to Google+, including this technique.
Have you tried to get your Facebook data into Google+ yet? Or are you waiting to see what Google+ does in the coming weeks?
