There are many ways of sharing these photos with others because it is not only available through the website but also via the mobile app as well as the desktop app. Even though the two services were separated before integration, users still had access to both accounts at the same time so they could use one to send files to the other. With the two integrated into one, users are able to get access to the same features of both in just one place. Another benefit of this integration is that users are able to store their photos online rather than just using their mobile device or computer’s hard drive because this gives them more free space. If their device crashes, then all their photos will still be safe online rather than having them all lost along with the device itself.
