A few years back, if you tried to share a large file, you had two options: 1) Copy the file in CD or DVD, 2) If you are sophisticated, you will be doing it through a USB drive. Having said that, we have an open number of possibilities to share files including We Transfer, Skotty.io, Dropbox and much more. To reiterate, file sharing services help users to share/receive files from other computers or devices through the Internet or a local network. Indeed, the cloud storage has made it simple to share the files as well.
Last week, news was rife in the Dutch tech media world about WeTransfer, when the file-sharing website had summoned RTL on Thursday to take an article offline. In a news piece, journalist Daniël Verlaan wrote about Skotty.io, the Dutch file sharing service saying, “We want to be a safe, privacy-friendly, WeTransfer-like service”. A few hours later, when Silicon Canals reported about the incident, Verlaan received apologies about the state of affairs from WeTransfer. Consequently, some Twitter users claimed to use Skotty.io after observing the series of events.
