The main advantage of this feature is that, it makes it easy to share files. You don’t have to manually email them and also most of your friends might be already there in Facebook. Another advantage is that they can view the contents of the folder directly even if they do not have a Dropbox account.

This is definitely a great feature in Dropbox, tying up with Facebook makes it reach more audience as well.

  1. This is an awesome feature but won’t it mean Dropbox’s servers will get hammered by non-paying customers?  Hopefully they thought this through from a financial perspective.

    • To an extend, yes…they are opening up Dropbox to non users as well. In turn they are expecting some business. Think of Facebook’s size and it they can squeeze some from there, its an added advantage

  2. Love this feature. Makes sharing even easier. Keep up the good work.
