If you ever need to share large files with your social network, try using Ge.tt to share files on Twitter, Facebook, or Email.
I’ve been using Ge.tt for a few months to send large files and presentations to clients, and recommend it to my social media clients.
What is Ge.tt
Ge.tt, co-founded by CEO Tobias Baunbæk of Copenhagen, Denmark in 2010, is branded as extremely simple realtime file-sharing, with no signup required. Ge.tt allows you to share any number of photos, videos, music, anything – in seconds – no matter how large. It is based solely on browser technologies and works directly in your browser. There is no flash required, no applet needed, and allows you to skip installation of any kind to share the files that you want.
Why You Should Try Ge.tt
While there are many ways to share medium and large files on the internet, Ge.tt offers the business branding that we love. We’re able to add our logo and a background to the page that clients view when they click to download the files that we send. I recommend this to many of my clients as well.
Now Ge.tt offers sharing of files on Twitter, and that is another reason why it stands out in social file sharing.
What Makes Ge.tt so Cool
Ge.tt offers this one key benefit:
- Immediate file sharing (read: real-time): You don’t have to wait for your file to finish uploading before you can share the link on Twitter, Facebook, or by Email.
How Ge.tt is Easy to Use
Ge.tt is well integrated with Chrome browser using apps from the Google Chrome Store, Firefox using add-ons, and iOS. So if you wanted to share files on Twitter, Facebook, or email using Chrome, Firefox, iPhone or iPad, you can use it very easily.
I do realize, however, that the hook with Ge.tt is that you don’t have to download or install an app in order to use it. But being able to integrate it directly into your browser with one click is pretty cool.
