In support of this new application, FilesAnywhere is providing free 1GB file storage accounts for all Facebook users that add the app.

integration with Facebook Platform for this application was the first logical choice for our API integration because of the large number of active Facebook users and because Facebook Platform allowed us to build a FilesAnywhere application that is deeply integrated into the user experience.

This makes it easy to store and share music, photos, documents, and all other kinds of files directly on Facebook.

User files and file sharing features also can be easily accessed from all web-enabled mobile phones, including the new iPhone(TM).

Facebook users can add the free application from this web page: http://apps.facebook.com/filesanywhere.
