Detailed Description

Update

Drop.io was a platform for simple private exchange. It enabled users to create simple private exchange points called "drops" which could be generated in as little as two clicks. Each drop could be accessed via the web, email, phone, fax, and widgets.

The service had no email signup and no "accounts." Each drop was private and only as accessible as users chose to make them. Users could create multiple drops, add any type of media, and share or subscribe as they wanted through email and RSS. 100MB of storage was provided for free and tiered storage was provided at cost up to 25GB.

In 2010, drop.io was acquired by Facebook.
