Microsoft recently released a new version of Docs.com, which was earlier maintained by Facebook. Docs.com now offers free and unlimited hosting of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Sway, PDF files and web pages. Users can upload their files on Docs.com, and easily share these with the world. Users can also create public collections of their documents to organize them.
Microsoft Docs.com promises to retain the actual formatting used in the documents. On the other hand, Microsoft also offers a fully featured online Office suite, Microsoft Office Online, similar to Google Docs. Users can create, edit and share Office documents using this online office suite.
Docs.com competes with SlideShare and other similar services providing free documents sharing and content discovery platform. Just like SlideShare, users can download and embed the shared documents.
