Facebook is collaborating with Microsoft to launch Docs.com, which will allow its over 400 million users to create and collaborate Office documents through Facebook.
Docs.com has been developed by Microsoft FUSE (Future Social Experiences) Labs. The user can create documents from within the web app or upload from a computer. Once uploaded, a document can be edited in real time online — a definite change from Microsoft's previous cloud offerings like the Sharepoint, which requires users to check in and out of documents when they want to edit these.
Microsoft owns a 1.6 per cent stake in Facebook.
