SocialFolders Launches to Put Social Content Back in Your Hands

SocialFolders Technology Turns Social Content Into Files You Can Store, Share, Sync and Own

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 15, 2011) - SocialFolders, the only application that lets you easily manage, sync and truly own any file on the social web, announced its launch out of beta today.

SocialFolders is rethinking the way you can manage your dynamic, social online content -- from Facebook to Flickr -- all in one place. Here's how it works: After downloading the app on your computer, simply connect to your favorite social sites and get going. SocialFolders will find the content -- photos, videos, docs and other files -- of your choice, create an easy directory you can manage locally, and let you organize, sync and even back up anything you want from the social web. To see how it works, here's a quick video.

Take the photos your friends have tagged of you on Facebook. With SocialFolders, round them all up and finally have an organized album on your computer. The app will also sync those pics to your favorite photo site, like Flickr or Picasa.

"There's been a ton of innovation in the way people sync and back-up the content living on their personal computer. But no one's tackled the problem of how much content lives on the social web, and how we own and manage it all," said Philippe Honigman, founder and CEO of SocialFolders. "Our vision is to provide an unparalleled way to own and manage any picture, video, document or file that lives across your various social networks and online destinations, and change the way you are able to truly organize your digital content."

Today's general launch includes three significant components:

1. Friends Sync: SocialFolders' Friends Sync makes it easy and seamless for you to access the social content that matters to you (think of that album on your friends' profile of your group trip to Rome) while respecting the privacy settings of your friends across all applicable social services.

2. Breakthrough integration with Google Docs: Users can connect with Google Docs, work on documents offline, and SocialFolders will automatically sync the changes back to Google Docs in the form of new revisions in that doc.

3. Robust new integrations: SocialFolders now integrates with today's most popular social sites, such as Twitter, Instagram, SmugMug, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Box, Google Docs, and YouTube.

SocialFolders is free for anyone to start using, with additional features available in its premium version. For more information, please visit
