At Facebook’s f8 developer conference, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced a new partnership between Microsoft and Facebook. Together, the two companies are launching www.docs.com, a site for sharing Microsoft Office files (Word, PowerPoint and Excel) directly with other Facebook users.
Microsoft’s Future Social Experiences (FUSE) Labs worked to create this new service, which is live now. Initially, you can register to see and comment on documents but only the first group to sign up with actually get to upload.
After signing in, a process which uses Facebook’s new sign in experience – one click to authorize access – you can browse sections like “My Docs,” “Friends’ Docs” and “Add a Doc.” You’ll also see a grid on the right featuring the friends of your who have already signed up for the Docs service.
On the homepage, there are some featured docs about Docs(.com, that is) which are worth a look if you want to know more.
