Facebook is working on lots of changes in 2020-2021. Recently, I received message that “facebook will now let users transfer their notes and posts to Google Docs, Blogger and WordPress.com, expanding its data portability tool.” Other news I received is: “Facebook joins Twitter and Microsoft in saying its staff can work from home after pandemic.” Facebook has launched secure data transfer features from Facebook to WordPress.com site.
As a WordPress developer, I was curious to work with new Facebook feature. I am using both paid and free versions of WordPress.com site and I would like to share difference between both the versions and some facts behind this so called feature. I hope this information will help for most WordPress and Facebook users.
