Today, during f8, Mark Zuckerburg unveiled the result of the latest Microsoft – Facebook collaboration, a platform that will allow creating and sharing of Microsoft office documents with your Facebook friends. The site, located at Docs.com, is open to the public and allows log-in using your Facebook credentials.
The service will be a direct competition with Google Docs and is based on Office 2010 platform. Clound creation and sharing tools will also be embedded in the stand-alone Office 2010 suite. Time will tell if Microsoft will beat the mighty Google at its own game, but the popularity of both Facebook and Office suite might actually do that. Microsoft also owns 1.6% stake in Facebook bought in 2007 for $240 millions.
