According to the features page:

Share folders with contacts

Share folders with your trusted colleagues.

Folder sharing is integrated into the Ubuntu desktop. Right-click on any synchronizing folder and pick contacts from your Evolution address book to share with. You can even grant the recipient read-only access for simple file viewing or write-access for complete control. Share recipients must have an Ubuntu One account to receive shared folders.

Whilst a link may theoretically answer the question, it is useful to give the essential parts of the link. Should the website go down, this answer would then be useless. – hexafraction Jul 23 '12 at 23:55

You need to log in to the UbuntuOne website.

Click on Files to see the list of files and folders.

To the far right of the folder you want to share, click on More, and then Share folder.
