Drop.io, the online storage service now supports Facebook Connect.

Here's how it works: when a drop.io user is adding and sharing files via a 'drop' he or she may access their personal Facebook account information via the settings function of the drop. Once the user registers the drop with their personal Facebook user identification information (username and password) a tab with a full list of that user’s facebook “friends” will populate on the screen. The user may then use this tab to create a shortlist of facebook friends permitted to access a given drop. “Friend Lock” restricts access to exactly the individuals you choose. You can select as many as you want, and even permission people based on their company name.
