Spotlight on Sharing
Today, we would like to turn your attention to sharing. Below is a brief introduction on sharing and how it works from our co-founder and CEO, Ethan Oberman.
As Ethan describes, you can carefully and selectively allow portions of your SpiderOak Network to be shared (or become public) to family, friends, colleagues, or clients. You can create any number of password protected ShareRooms and share data aggregated over several machines (a folder from your Mac and another from your Windows machine). Furthermore, the data within a ShareRoom is automatically updated when changes occur eliminating the need to ever resend content. A ShareRoom may be accessed as a unique web URL or by entering a user’s ShareID and RoomKey on the SpiderOak homepage – easily allowing people you invite to view your documents, pictures, movies, and so on. In addition, each ShareRoom has a unique RSS feed to alert guests when new content is available.
This last video demonstrates just how easy it is to create a ShareRoom. Happy sharing!
