I know Facebook has a public API that has extensive documentation. Just check out https://developers.facebook.com/docs. You then need to either find an existing Java library (I don't know if Facebook4J is any good), or implement it yourself using a library like Apache Http Client.

I don't know if DropBox has a similar public API. You would have to check that out.
