Dropbox celebrates 100 million users five years later

Dropbox celebrates 100 million users by offering up free storage for telling your story

| Cloud Computing News | Posted: Nov 14, 2012 2:31 am

Most of our readers will know about the service Dropbox, which provides 2GB of free cloud storage, with ways to earn more and options to pay for more. The service was started roughly five years ago after the creator forgot his USB stick at home. Since then, Dropbox has grown by leaps and bounds and has had to fight off competition from larger tech companies, such as Microsoft and Google.

Today, the Dropbox blog announced that they have 100 million users, "100 million [different] reasons" for needing cloud storage, but a general place to join together. The blog post goes on to share some stories of people who use the service and how they use it to advance whatever worthy cause they are championing.

 

For instance, Coach Stringfellow:

 

Among these is Coach Stringfellow in Utah. High school football's a big deal - while there are the lights, crowds, and cheerleaders, less visible are the sweat and tears needed to build a great team. Coach Stringfellow and his players use Dropbox to study game films and scouting reports on their own terms. And because Dropbox keeps everyone connected, the Bountiful Braves have the edge they need to play stronger and smarter.

 

To celebrate 100 million users, Dropbox would like to hear your story about how you use the service. You can tell them your story at their website and if yours is picked as a top 100 favorite, they will give you 10GB of free storage for life. If you make the top 10 favorites, you'll get 100GB for life.
