To use the new feature, just click the context menu for any file/folder, then choose Get shareable link. That'll take you to a unique landing page with a URL you can copy and paste into an e-mail, tweet, Facebook update, etc. (Dropbox even goes to the trouble of shortening it for you using their db.tt system.)
Just one catch: You must have the Dropbox desktop client 0.8 beta installed, otherwise you won't see the link-share option.
In case you're not a fan, here's why you should be: Dropbox quickly and easily synchronizes data between your PCs, the Web, your phone, etc. A free account nets you 2GB of storage; the Pro 50 account (50GB) costs $9.99 per month.
The new link-sharing feature may seem minor, but it's an awesome addition. My only question for Dropbox: what took you so long? [via Web Worker Daily]
