For the first time in history, companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Microsoft have ignored their competitiveness and have come up for Data Transfer Project. This new Open Source Project — Data Transfer Project will provide users an easy option to transfer data between all these platforms. If everything is in accordance with the default plan, the user’s data will be transmitted from one-to-another or uploaded to another service. Similarly, users will not have to be bound to any service regarding their data.
This data transfer project of Facebook, Google, Twitter and Microsoft has been announced with a website, which has all the details regarding this. Similarly, users can search on this project open source code GitHub, but this project is currently passing through the initial stages. Steve Sheterfield, the Facebook Privacy and Public Policy Director, said that it was never easy to use the data of any service during signing up for another service, but now we are glad to announce that we Data transfer is becoming part of the project.
This project has come up with considerable scandal regarding data sharing. Facebook encountered Cambridge Analytica Data Scandal while accessing ‘third-party apps’ data access to multiple platforms revealed.According to companies, you may be using an app that shares your images in a community, such as a social networking app that does not have the user’s data stored; this project will help overcome such issues.
