Drop.io is shutting down. If you don’t already use it, it’s an online file sharing service similar to Boxnet. That stinks for me because it’s already shut down and I use it. Why did it shut down? It’s now part of the  Facebook team and the services are not needed. You can read more about the business end of it over there but check out these 5 tools that I tend use and recommend to friends and colleagues.

If you use Dop.io you can still use your drops but be aware that all drops are permanently deleted as of December 15, 2010.

5 Strong file and video sharing tools for recruiters:

Spicebird: This is an opensource communication platform including emails, IM and an online calendar. It’s windows and Linux based and will connect to standard email and calendar based programs.

ReviewBasics: This tool is free for now as of today but will eventually offer a paid platform. Is a nice service for people that are collaborating and editing various forms of content. I liked the option to markup videos as well as documents.

Writeboard: I like Whiteboard because it’s free but it also serves as a collaboration tool for writing. I can share documents and keep track of previous versions and ideas. They call this a roll back but it’s great for blogging and project work for multiple users and revisions.

Vyew: This is quickly taking over for as my choice of free web conferencing and on the spot training tools. You simply log in and play. No installation required.

Mikogo: Is another strong and free web conferencing tool that is free for both enterprise and private use. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and it’s really simple to use.
