Docs.com officially opened for users

As Neowin reported two weeks ago, Microsoft has been working on a new social website called Docs.com.  Built using Microsoft Office 2010, users can upload, create, edit and share Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with friends and family on Facebook.

The online social Office lets your Facebook friends – when users login through Facebook Connect – connect with your shared documents, which can be posted on your wall.  Docs.com lets the user set the level of privacy, on per-file bases, so you can hide files from view, or allow some or all of your friends to just view or edit files with you.  Unlike Office 2010, only one user can edit a document at a time.

Docs.com includes the same ribbon found in Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint, offering users the same experience online, as they would on the desktop version.   Although Docs.com is still in beta, and may add more functionality in the future, the experience is flawless.

Docs.com is completely free to sign up and use - using your Facebook credentials - giving users an easy way to create, edit and share documents with everyone.

I logged in and clicked on "Sign up for Beta". Just have a message that reads "Thanks!
We'll let you know as soon as we can." So I guess I'm waiting for an email.

what if I dont have facebook account and I don't want one?

You can use Office Web Apps on Skydrive with your Windows Live Id but you won't be able to have the exclusive to Docs.com feature of sharing docs with Facebook friends.

Hmm, nothing happens when I click the "Sign Me Up" button?

Same here. No uploading, creating new docs. Nothing here.

Even with me logged in, the site is completely dead. None of the links lead anywhere anymore.

I had the same problem and then noticed that it was my pop-up blocker that was interjecting for me (as it should be).

Not yet here "While Docs is in Beta, we're gradually allowing people to create and upload their own documents. Join our wait list and we'll notify you when these features become
available to you. " - "Docs is currently open for a limited number of users. If you have an invitation code, you can enter it below for immediate access."

just click enter, and you'll active it.
