Today, Facebook is launching the ability for members of Groups to easily share files with members of that Group. It was released on a far smaller scale last month with Facebook Groups for Schools, but is now available to anyone within a group.
There are however some limitations, which are:
- The file limit is set to 25MB per file
- Music is not permitted to be shared
- Executables files (.exe) are also not allowed
Once it has uploaded, you will see that there are 2 options available to you, or other members of the group. Download or Upload a revised version of the file.
For test purposes, I uploaded a revised video (higher quality) version
It will inform you that there are revisions of the file by the History link. How many revisions will be shown in the brackets.
That’s pretty much it. As you can see though, it’s extremely limited and I can’t see many people using it with the limitations on a large scale.
If you are looking for a decent way to share files with your friends without the limitations that Facebook’s sharing has, then see this list below:
