Zoho Puts SaaS Apps on Facebook

Zoho is one of those off-brand online office applications wannabes that dreams of putting Microsoft and Google out of business

Zoho, one of those off-brand online office applications wannabes that dreams of putting Microsoft out of business and heading off Google, has put some of its free widgetry on Facebook, the social networking site, via a Facebook-embedded widget, a move that might prove to be quite clever.

Facebook users with Zoho accounts can use Zoho's word processor, spreadsheet and presentation code - Write, Sheet and Show - and share documents but - whoops - there's no link back to Facebook and sharing isn't exactly slick.

Zoho imagines kids doing their homework together, a dubious practice, but that's apparently what it's targeting.

A division of something called AdventNet, a sizeable and growing Indian operation with hundreds of engineers, Zoho currently has some 15 productivity apps and is warming up to offer a free Google-like business edition in September claiming better functionality.
