Dropbox "Public" folder not enabled by default

Dropbox has announced not to enable "Public" folders by default. Here are direct words from dropbox

Please note: New Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 no longer have a Public folder.
However they have given a link by which you can enable public folder manually.
Here is the link 
In case the link no longer work, please browse to see further about it.

You can always share files with your friends by email address without using public folder. But public folder don't need any additional permission for access, anyone who has link to one's public folder can have access to his/her all contents of public folder without any permission.
There are more advantages of public folder such as Hosting Static Website on Public Folder.
