Facebook Docs: Facebook gets its own version of Microsoft Web Office
Basically, Facebook users get Microsoft web apps, and Microsoft gets ... a whole bunch of Facebook users. Since Microsoft's campaign to bring Office to the web means a head-to-head battle with Google Docs, I'm sure MS was thrilled to get a few hundred million extra users. Facebook users are valuable, too. Microsoft is doing fine in business environments, but the younger, student-heavy Facebook crowd offers an opportunity to snatch some users away from Google.
