SocialFolders: Sync and Backup Your Social Media Files to Your PC

SocialFolders-logoSocialFolder is a new service that allows users to synchronize their files on different social media services with files on their desktop computer. Think of SocialFolders as Dropbox for your social media files. The service automatically syncs your photos, videos and files from the web with a folder on your computer that you can access offline. You can, for instance, work on your Google docs while offline. When you connect to the Internet again, the changes will automatically be made in the online versions. SocialFolder also syncs content from one service with another, allowing you to have all albums in your Flickr account automatically added to your Facebook account or Picasa account, for instance.

SocialFolders places an icon on the navigation pane in Windows explorer under the favorites section. Double-clicking the icon opens the SocialFolders folder, which contains sub-folders for each connected service. The folders are named after the online service with additional subfolders to organize the content. The program supports Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, YouTube, Google Docs, Twitter, Evernote, Instagram and several others. Right-clicking on the icon reveals options to add more connected services, refresh all services, and change your preferences such as changing your name, e-mail, or unlinking a computer from SocialFolders.


The free version lets you connect up to three social media sites and transfer 2,000 files, but you can earn additional social network connection and 500 more files by inviting friends to join the service. Upgrading removes all restrictions but will cost you $1.99 per month, or $9.99 annually.


Friends Sync: SocialFolders makes it easy and seamless for you to access the social content that matters to you (think of that album on your friends’ profile of your group trip to Rome) while respecting the privacy settings of your friends across all applicable social services. Friends’ content is available for Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and Instagram – without having to invite your friends to SocialFolders. This feature will be extended to other services soon.

Versioning support for Google Docs: Users can connect with Google Docs, work on documents offline, and SocialFolders will automatically sync the changes back to Google Docs in the form of new revisions in that doc.

Supported services: SocialFolders integrates with Twitter, SmugMug, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, Box, Google Docs, Evernote and YouTube.

Facebook Photos I’m tagged in: You can download automatically in a dedicated folder all the Facebook photos where you’re tagged.

Privacy settings: When you upload new photos or albums through SocialFolders, you can set them as private or public by default.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
