"We're often asked how our online file sharing ( is different from sites like Facebook, which also allows people to share photos with friends. The main difference is that users can truly share their photos and files privately with friends. If a subscriber designates their photos as private, only their invited friends will be able to see the photos. On a site like Facebook, the friends can forward the URL and anyone in the world will be able to see the photos thought to be private. With our site, the forwarded link won't work unless it was forwarded to a designated friend, making us a perfect choice for people who don't want their private photos sent all over the internet," said DeRegnaucourt.
