You can also upload videos to YouTube and download photos of Instagram and so more with this simple tools. Once you install SocialFolders, it will create a folder on Favorite just like Dropbox. From the moment when you connect a service compatible with SocialFolders, a local folder in that SocialFolders folder will be created on your computer. While connecting a service, it will ask you to choose which folders you want to add to user SocialFolders account. SocialFolders will then start downloading files on that folder in you computer.

SocialFolders has an interesting concept. The program provides what is needed to upload and download files and images to different social networks in an automatic route. You can do everything manually, but the software also does the job alone well. It is the solution you need to work with Google Docs files offline or when you need to download all images shared by your or shared by your friends in Facebook. Another thoughtful feature is the synchronization between services. For example, you can have all your photos synchronized from Flickr to Facebook. SocialFolders is not an application for you to follow the tweets of your contacts or the status of your friends on Facebook. What it does is to facilitate the upload and download images and other files. You could also say that the focus of SocialFolders is to power up photo upload and management through different services. But you can also use as a backup service for your mostly use Cloud Service or Social Network.
