Share files on Facebook and Twitter with free drag and drop tool

The shortcoming of social networks

Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are common marketing tools in a Realtors toolbelt now, but one of their shortcomings is effective file sharing of big files. There are various ways to share files across the networks, but one that requires no tech savviness is Drops. allows you to drag any file up to 50 MB in size and in seconds, it generates a shortened URL. So imagine you want to share a raw, unedited video file with your network to ask for input, or perhaps even directly to your client over email- all you have to do is drag and drop the file on any Mac, PC or Linux computer, and you get a URL to share.

This could be especially useful if you have a group of high resolution photos to share because Twitter only allows one image at a time, and Facebook shrinks and degrades photos, so uploading a zip file is a more effective route than individually uploading images and drowning your networks with updates. Drops is a creative way to share files with ease and the sender as well as receiver are not required to have any technical knowledge. Simple!

    This is pretty cool! Like dropbox for social media. I like the cluster option, because you rarely share just one picture in Real Estate.
