Facebook has this week launched a new group file sharing service to a “small percentage” of users and will be rolling the features out to all members of Facebook groups shortly.
The new Facebook Group file sharing features allows users to upload files up to 25mb in size, which can then be shared with all users within that group.
Within the service there are a few exceptions to the type of files that users can upload and Facebook has restricted the uploading of music files and executable (.exe) files for security reasons. However videos and e-books under 25mb in size are not a problem says Facebook.
To stop the spread of malicious, inappropriate or copyrighted files Facebook, “users can report files the same way they can with other content across the site,” a Facebook spokesperson explained.
