10. How to Send Large Files (1GB) on Facebook

Send a big chunk of files from to your friend via Facebook using Pipe app. You can drop a file up to 1GB in the Pipe when it is green (this indicates that your friend has the Pipe app open at the same time). The file is then transferred directly from your computer to your friend’s computer without being stored on any kind of server. In case your friend is not online, the Pipe is blue and you can send them a file up to 100MB. The file then gets stored securely in a Locker for up to 3 days – and only your friend has access to it.
