    How to send or share files on the internet


    I mean sending files to my friends when they're online. Of course, I can do that by sending an email with an attachment. But you know there is a limitation on the file size. In the past, I could use IM like live messenger. But I know that the feature has been removed from the latest Skype. In Windows 8, I suppose there may be some other convenient ways to do so, but just don't know how.

    I would use Dropbox in general. i haven't been to this site recently. It seems now that watching the video on this link probably is the best way to learn/get started. And, of course, I use email for sharing some things.
