With the advent of social media, people are increasingly spending more time online. Consequently, your social accounts are one of the most valuable assets of your online identity storing tons of data which is at least as important (if not more) as the data on your hard disk. Important documents on Gmail, pictures on flickr, Instagram, Facebook, professional contacts on Linkedin and the list goes on. But have you thought; what if someday you login into your favorite social media site and all your data is lost! The threats are many: phishing attacks, hackers, malware, virus, and may be an Ex who has your password!
If you are one of those people, like me, who have lost your night’s sleep over Gmail’s data disaster or worried when LinkedIn passwords got hacked, then you now have a solution that promises a more peaceful sleep.
We’ve Frostbox, a cool new platform that helps you back up your social media and files. It is a freemium service that lets you backup your social media data on the cloud. Currently the back up service is for Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Flickr, Vimeo and Instagram.
It also gives you an ability to share these files securely with your friends. Apart from backup and sharing of files, there are added features like basic editing for your files and pictures and an option to play the media files.
Co-founded by Maggie and Shane, Frostbox is a great tool to store all your important social media data in case something goes wrong. The service is currently in public beta, so you can feel free to create an account (bare in mind it takes a while for all the photos and data to be backed up fully).
All the social media junkies out there, it’s time to make up a disaster recovery plan!
