Sync Your Online Media With Your Desktop

Windows/Mac: If you’ve ever wanted to keep a local copy of all the pictures, video and files you post on social media sites like Facebook, Flickr, Picasa and Google Docs, Social Folders can give you just that. Additionally, it’ll sync any changes you make online or locally so managing your online media from your desktop is incredibly easy.

All you have to do to get started with Social Folders is download the app for Windows or Mac, sign up for an account, and start linking your social media accounts through the Social Folders web app. If you’re already signed in to those accounts this process will only take a few clicks. You’ll be able to connect to a good variety of services, such as Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Google Docs, Instagram, YouTube and Box. Social Folders will then sync all your content so you can access it easily from your computer. It will also scan for updates periodically, whether they were added via the web or to one of the synced folders on your machine, and synchronise the changes. This means, for example, that you can upload new photos to Facebook by just dropping them in a folder.

Social Folders isn’t as quick about noticing updates as it could be, but you can always manually initiate a sync to hurry the process along. Even if you’re using it solely to keep local copies of the stuff you post online, it’s a very useful utility.
