Google announced today, April 1, that it has added export support to Google Analytics for 3.5″ floppy, CD-Rom, Papyrus and Sticky Note, as well as new send options: Carrier Pigeon, Fax, Telegram and Telegraph.

“We believe you should be able to access your Google Analytics data from wherever, whenever,” writes the Google Analytics team in a blog post. “And while yes, it’s pretty convenient to be able to export data to Google Spreadsheets or send a report to an email recipient with a few simple clicks, we recognize there are other ways people like to be able to share their data as well. That’s why we’ve re-imagined our Export and ‘Send To’ options to give you even more options and support some of our favorite legacy technology.”

You should see these in the Actions menu:

Google Analytics April Fools

Google says the old school export and send-to options will be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Obviously this is all a very bad joke. On the other hand, how funny can Analytics humor really get?
