Seagates Backup Plus Hard Drives Sync and Share Files to Facebook, Flickr

David Pierce, writing for The Verge:

"The drives keep all your files safe, like any good external hard drive, and can also grab files from various social networks. Part of the setup process for the new 2.5-inch drives (available from 500GB to 4TB) includes logging in to Facebook or Flickr (the company plans to add more services soon), and Seagate's software will then automatically back up photos from the two networks, as well as provide an interface for sharing files from your device to the web."

Sure, connecting a backup device containing all your personal files to Facebook sounds like a great idea.
