Create and Share Office Documents on Facebook with Docs.com

With FaceBook becoming larger than life, the chances of  finding most of your family members, school-mates, colleagues, buddies, friends, coworkers, university mates, or old any other acquaintance is not too difficult. You could easily share media files with them, but exchanging documents was a problem.

There is a solution for this problem, and it is, a result of joint effort of Microsoft fuse lab and FaceBook. They, together, have been able to provide online document editing suite. In a nutshell, it is an office web application which is customized for Facebook users.

Officially, the Docs.com was announced by FaceBook founder “Mark Zuckerberg” on the April 21, 2010, which was at the FaceBook f8 conference. By utilizing the strength of “Office web Apps” and inbuilt office 2010, it enables users to create, edit, view and also share the Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, OneNote and PowerPoint presentations. This move brings in convenience for the FaceBook users to start using office documents, and makes it easier form them to share those documents with anyone listed in their contacts.

The application also allows for uploading office documents from the local computers. The saved files and documents will be securely hosted on cloud computing servers, and they can be shared with friends very easily on FaceBook.

Docs.com enables users to mark the files as private documents. Such documents can be managed only by the account holder or by the people who have been assigned with the editing rights. You could easily add more editors by using a button that is available on the right side of the documents.

Docs plug-in with Facebook, also allows users to find the document shared by his or her friend on their wall post. They could also share it further. You can also incorporate a new tab on profile, which will contain the details of shared documents with the friends.

Therefore, Docs are able to take the benefit of common features of Facebook such as hitting “Like” button and comment for public discussions. If you want to use Docs.com, then you have to first request for permission on FaceBook Docs Applications.

You don’t really have to worry about sharing the documents anymore. You could easily upload them to your profile and use them according to your needs.

We feel that this is an excellent feature by FaceBook. Additionally, you might also want to check on Google docs which allows for similar features but from your Google account. Here Facebook is a better option because it happens in a closed environment, but if you use Google docs feature, there are lot of over heads when it comes to sharing !

Also, we feel that it is better to download the document to your local computer, do your work and then upload them again. This way you will be able to use more office features of Microsoft word / doc,  especially those which are not are not available in their online counterparts. Obviously, Microsoft office in the offline more responds better to your commands.

Share Similar Pagefile.Sys Paging File

Share Similar Pagefile.Sys Paging File      

Although you may have many gigabytes of RAM modules or physical memory, Windows operating system, particularly Windows 7 and Windows Vista is always craving for more memory. Virtual memory is one of the free as well as easy resolutions, by using a page file which is stored in hard disk that can be used instead of the RAM.

Although, paging file of virtual memory, i.e. pagefle.sys together with system as well as hidden attributes, fills up the space in hard disk.

While considering dual-boot and multi-boot system that is running multiple instances in Windows operating system in different drive of hard disk (volume or partition), there will be many copies of pagefile.sys that will be created and exist in every system drive. In a computer that runs slow on drive space, have multiple pagefile.sys files which will waste more space of disk.

For avoiding wastage of hard disk for VM paging file, you can opt for workaround which will instruct Windows7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 as well as Windows Server 2008 for using the same paging file.

For using a single pagefile.sys only for all operating systems of Windows which is installed in the PC, the user has first to decide in which drive to keep the pagefile.sys. That drive can be a drive of existing system in an operating system (that means no chance required for the OS installed), or may be a latest formatted drive or partition.

After determining in which drive you want to put the pagefile.sys, but the partition volume should be visible to each as well as every system for sharing the paging file. You can add or assign in the disk, otherwise can assign drive letter by using Disk Management of Computer Management in the Control Panel if the partition remains invisible to you. After that, the user has to determine drive letter path in the drive.

For switching and changing the paging file of the system for using the pagefile.sys which is shared, the user has to right click in the Computer, and then select Properties. After that click on the Advanced system settings (for Windows XP as well as Windows Server 2003, you have to go to the Advanced tab). Then click on Settings button which is there in Performance section, after that go to the advanced tab.

Here under the section of Virtual memory, you have to click on the Change button. Then uncheck the option which automatically manages the paging file size of all drives.

For those drives that you do not need pagefile.sys to be present, select them as well as set those for No paging file for disabling paging file storage in the drive. In that drive which contains the pagefile.sys that is shared, set it as the Custom size or may be as System managed size. The user has to repeat the same process for each and every operating system installed.
