Facebook announced today that it is integrating with the infamous personal file sharing company Dropbox. Now, users can share files in Facebook Groups using Dropbox.
In a blog post on Dropbox’s blog, Chris Varenhorst writes:
“Today we’re psyched to announce that you can share stuff from Dropbox right inside Facebook Groups! Now you can share notes with your study group, add the latest game schedule to your basketball team’s group, or post a birthday video to your family’s group at lightning speed from wherever you are — just as long as you have them saved in Dropbox.
Just like other posts to Facebook Groups, people can like or comment on anything you share from within the group. And if you make any edits to a file you’ve shared, the group will get an update automatically!”
Facebook says that this new feature doesn’t replace the current ability of uploading files from your computer to Groups. This just allows users to upload files that they have already stored on their Dropbox.
