Facebook To Roll Our File Sharing For Groups
[mashable.com]
Could Facebook become the next Dropbox — or a haven for sharing files without regard to copyright?

The social network has revealed to Mashable that all Groups will now offer the ability to send files. This update rolls out to a small percentage of groups Thursday, and will become available to others during the following days. If you don’t have the feature already, Facebook wants you to know you’ll have it “soon.”
Users can upload most file types up to 25MB — the same file size limit as Gmail. The exceptions: music files (sorry, old-school Napster fans) and executable (.exe) files (sorry, hackers). But e-books, comics, music videos and other small movies are fair game.

This is, no doubt, in response to Google providing a similar service recently but since the move makes sense I like it.

i love how .mp3 and .exe automatically mean music pirate and virus creator all the time.

Wonder if they thought to rule out .bat :) or .reg or text files with instructions to rename to.reg ( fav win prog crack/ patch techniques )
or steganographic* files ( which if well done can contain anything )..or file splitter multipart archive files with any suffix , or...

* are they currently checking for these anyway, if not there could be anything "behind" the images on some walls etc..
