How to Share Dropbox Files with Facebook Friends?

Dropbox, the super-awesome backup service has always touted the feature where you can share a file with someone using their email address. Recently, they announced a new feature wherein a user can share files with his/her Facebook contacts. In this blog post, you can learn how how to do that!

Invite to Folder

  • After you log into Dropbox, right click on the folder that you intend to share and choose ‘Invite to Folder’ like you’ve always done.

Invite Facebook Friends

  • In the dialog box that appears now, click on ‘Invite Facebook Friends’ and allow Dropbox to access your Facebook account.
  • After you’ve done the previous step, you should be able to type in the name of your Facebook friends in the invite dialog box simply by typing in their name.

If you still don’t see the ‘Invite Facebook friends’ option, don’t panic. Dropbox is still rolling out this feature and you should see it pretty soon.
