If you have been using the Beta versions of the Office 2010 WebApps as of yesterday – you are in the company of 400 million friends!
Yes – in a very unexpected announcement, Microsoft and Facebook made available http://docs.com – which allows Facebook users to collaborate using Office 2010 Web Apps.
Now you can discover, create, and share Microsoft Office documents with your Facebook friends. Built using Microsoft Office 2010 – Docs for Facebook lets you work from just about anywhere with the familiar Office experience.
IMHO, this is a very significant move by Microsoft to finally level off the lead Google Docs had in the marketplace.
What I do not understand is why Facebook? Yes it has 400 million users, but I think it is mostly used for personal social connections. The people I know, including me, do not want to combine true friends and business connections. – What’s up with that?
