Facebook Poll Results and Insights: What are you sending with file transfer services or FTP sites?

This past month, we began polling you, our community, on our Facebook page. From the poll results, we opened with a question about the average size of the files you send with file transfer programs. It sounds as though most of you send files that are smaller than 25 GB, but almost a third of you need to send 100 GB files, and about 7% have 300 GB files to send! That got us wondering: what types of files are you sending with file transfer services or FTP sites? Here are our results:

Facebook poll on the Adobe Acrobat page:

So, it seems that 52% of you are sending graphic files or web design assets, and about a third are sending large PDF files. Other popular files include high resolution photos, application updates, business plans and family memories (personal files to family and friends).

Don’t worry, though; we’ve got a really simple suggestion that we think will make your lives a little easier. If you’re using file transfer services or FTP sites to send graphics or other assets (or if you have any large files to send, really), you’ll want to try Adobe SendNow. Not only can you send up to 100 MB for free, but you can send a broad range of files from CAD files to audio or video files to Microsoft Word documents. For a full list of files check out the Adobe SendNow FAQ.
