Facebook Groups ushers in Dropbox file sharing abilities

Facebook Groups now includes Dropbox file sharing

| Social Networking News | Posted: Sep 27, 2012 5:30 am

Facebook felt like it really hit a brick wall a few months ago, where it seemed to stand still (for me at least) on its feature set. Not anymore, we're seeing huge strides in the social networking sites abilities, with the latest news that Dropbox are rolling out a feature with Facebook that will let you share your Dropbox files directly to Facebook Groups.

To share with your Facebook group, click 'Add File' on the group's page. Once you choose to link Facebook to your Dropbox account, you'll be able to search through your Dropbox and select what you'd like to share. Docs, photos, and videos shared from Dropbox will show up on the group's wall and can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet.

 

This feature is definitely something suited for businesses, where they can share files quickly and painlessly. It saves having to have a web browser tab open with Dropbox, and shifting between Facebook and the cloud storage site. But then there is the biggest question of all: are you comfortable sharing business-type files on Facebook?
