how to simply use Google Doc to share documents

Google® Doc is an online document sharing solution based on the cloud model. If you have a Google® account, you can simply create and share text, spreadsheets, presentations or image documents. In addition, you can upload a document from your hard drive and share it. However, files need to be converted to the Google® Doc format in order to be edited online. The interface of Google® Doc is very clean and non-cluttered. Many formatting options are not found in the doc editor, such as the ability to manually place pictures with your mouse, which can be irritating.

The suite, showing off the well-known speed and integration from Google®, was both fast to load and easy to use. In the instructions below, you can read how to simply use this handy tool to share documents with your friends.
