Integration of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger

Dropbox?

Dropbox is a cloud storage service, which aims to “access your files from anywhere”. In 2013, Dropbox had over 200 million users, earning it the title of “fastest growing startup” (Poniatowski, 2013. Dropbox allows users to sync files between their computers and online storage.

Facebook Messenger?

Facebook Messenger is a messaging app offered by Facebook. It was released in August 2011 and has been gaining popularity since then. The app allows users to message each other with text, images and videos. Users can also use the app to send payments to other users.

Integration of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger

Integrating Dropbox with Facebook Messenger could make a significant impact on usage of both apps. The features of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger are almost identical, therefore integration of the two services could make it easier for people to manage their documents across devices.

For example, if I wanted to send a document from my laptop to my phone, I would need to open Dropbox app on my laptop, upload the document to the fpder I want to share it with on Dropbox, open the Facebook Messenger app on my phone, and paste the link to that document into the chat. This process is cumbersome and requires a lot of steps before I can share any files with my friends. Integrating the two apps would allow me to use a single app for sharing documents. After uploading the document on Dropbox app, I would be able to send a link to that document from my phone directly through the Facebook Messenger app.

Benefits of Integration of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger

There are several benefits of integrating Dropbox and Facebook Messenger. First, integration of these two apps would reduce the number of steps required for sharing documents. Second, integration would create synergy between two apps; this will drive user growth for both apps. Third, Facebook Messenger already has a large user base; integration of Dropbox will improve the user experience of Facebook Messenger app and attract new users to download the app. Lastly, integration of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger will allow email attachments to be replaced by links to files stored on Dropbox. This will make file sharing more convenient than using email attachments.

Integration of Dropbox and Facebook Messenger could simplify sharing of documents across devices; it could also increase user engagement for both apps. However, there are some challenges that must be addressed before integration of these two services can be introduced. First, there are technical difficulties in integrating Dropbox with Facebook Messenger because both services are offered by different companies. Second, integration could continue to promote the use of mobile devices instead of laptops; this might not be beneficial for all users as laptops provide better typing experience than mobile devices. Finally, privacy concerns may arise from integrating Dropbox with Facebook Messenger due to strong contrp that Facebook has over its users.
