Google Warns Users Of Facebook Data Portability Issue

The war between Facebook and Google over data import/export has taken another twist. We already know that Google made some tweaks to make importing data into Facebook a little trickier, after which Facebook figured out a workaround to the whole situation. Now Google has released a little warning page, telling users what they’re getting themselves into, reminding them that the service doesn’t allow them to re-export your data to other services etc. Basically it’s a good reminder of what is going on and a deterrent to folks who aren’t in tune with all these things. Will this war between Facebook and Google escalate further? It probably will, though it’s unclear what the final outcome will be.
