Google wants to differentiate from Facebook by offering a lot of ways to export your data. The Data Liberation Front – a team of engineers at Google has introduced the Google Takeout Service. Google Takeout is a feature that’s included in Google+, but it’s also available as a standalone service. You can use it to export your contacts, Google Buzz messages, Picasa Web photos and Profile data with one click.
“Google Takeout lets you take your data out of multiple Google products in one fell swoop. Moreover, you’ll find that all your data is in portable and open formats‚ so it’s easy to import to other services quickly,” mentions the Data Liberation blog.
Some time ago Google released a service called Google Dashboard which gave users insight into their account activity. Still, it did not offered any means to download data. Thanks to the Data Liberation Front for this great tool.
