Dropbox Facts

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox lets anyone upload and transfer files to the cloud, and share them with anyone. Back up and sync docs, photos, videos, and other files to cloud storage and access them from any device, no matter where you are. And with advanced sharing features, it’s easy to share docs and send files—large or small—to family, friends, and co-workers. (source)

dmr industry report company statistics factsThis report is available in an annual industry report. Some of the data in industry reports include:

  • Users
  • Demographics
  • Revenue
  • Growth
  • Etc.-all in one place

I try to go through each and every stat regularly and update as much as possible, but we all know that some stats are easier to track down than others. As always, every stat is linked to its original source and has the source date listed.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Dropbox stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
