For those of you who have taken the Dropbox plunge, if you signed up with your edu email account Dropbox wants to double the space you get from referrals. That’s now 500MB per referral. And it’s retroactive. That’s right. They’ll double the extra space you’ve already received from referrals.
Just visit this webpage and confirm your email address. Your space will be automatically increased.
If you’re not a Dropbox user, it’s time to sign up. Not familiar with Dropbox? See this earlier blog post.
How do you get space for referrals? Log into your Dropbox.com account, and click on the “Referral Status” tab. At the very bottom of the page, click where it says “Invite more people to join Dropbox!” At the very bottom of that page is URL you can give to friends, family, or complete strangers. If they use that URL to sign up for a Dropbox account, Dropbox will give you an extra 250MB of space – or 500MB if you use your edu email to create your account.
