The current 25MB-per-upload file-sharing feature for Facebook groups isn’t bad, but it’s nice to know you can review and edit your docs in the cloud without having to sign into Facebook – which means you’re safe from getting sucked into the inevitable productivity-killing Social Media vortex at work.
The new Dropbox feature also means your docs are viewable on smartphones and tablets.
A less cool feature? The possible privacy issues associated with this new feature. The Dropbox file that you share in a group, which can be liked and commented on by fellow group members, shows up as a link. This link is unlisted and thus unguessable by those who don’t know the doc or folder name, but it can be copied and pasted elsewhere — which I guess means you should make sure you really trust your fellow Facebook group members before sharing a Dropbox doc.
