Dropbox and Facebook have announced a new integration, where Facebook Group users will be able to share stuff from their Dropbox directly with group members on Facebook.

A spokesperson for Dropbox tells WebProNews that the partnership builds upon its “mission to create easier ways for people to be more productive, collaborate, and access their life’s work whenever they need it, whether from mobile devices or multiple computers.”

“Now you can share notes with your study group, add the latest game schedule to your basketball team’s group, or post a birthday video to your family’s group at lightning speed from wherever you are,” says Dropbox’s Chris Varenhorst. “Just like other posts to Facebook Groups, people can like or comment on anything you share from within the group. And if you make any edits to a file you’ve shared, the group will get an update automatically!”

When users link their Dropbox accounts to their Facebook accounts, they can search through Dropbox and select what they want to share. Docs, photos, and videos shared from Dropbox will show up on the group’s wall.

The integration is rolling out today. If you can’t see it yet, you should be able to shortly.
