  * #### **<a title="Google Docs" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Google Docs</a>   


    These are a part of Google’s SaaS (Software as a Service) version of MS Office. Documents, Spreadsheets, forms and presentations can be created within the application itself, imported through the web interface, or sent via email. They can also be saved to the user&#8217;s computer in a variety of formats (OpenOffice, HTML, PDF, RTF, Text, Word). By default, they are saved to the Google servers. But they have some limitations too: 
      * The files can only be downloaded or uploaded once at a time 
      * A user can have a total of 5,000 documents and presentations, 5,000 images, 1,000 spreadsheets, and 100 PDFs 
      * Only presentations under 10MB can be imported

    This applications is very useful for research purposes. This is similar to writing on a pad. This personal browser tool permits a user to write notes, and to clip text, images, and links from pages during browsing. These are saved to an online "notebook" with sharing and collaboration features. To increase its feasibility, ZOHO has facilitated the option to login using Google or Yahoo. As an added advantage add-on’s are available for firefox which can be downloaded <a title="Firefox add-on for Zoho Notebook" href="" target="_blank">here</a>.

                    Today <a title="Facebook" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">FaceBook</a> is one of the fastest growing social networking site . Why?? because it is simple and fast as compared to others.Facebook is a free-access social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. Users can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people. People can also add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves.

Hi5 also allows the user to create personal photo albums and set up a music player in the profile. Users can also send friend requests via e-mail to other users. When a person receives a friend request, he or she may accept or decline it, or block the user altogether. If the user accepts another user as a friend, the two will be connected directly or in the 1st degree. The user will then appear on the person&#8217;s friend list and vice-versa.

One of the first functions to be redesigned was the user home page, with features such as status updates, applications, and subscriptions being added in order to compete with Facebook. In 2008, the MySpace homepage was redesigned. MySpace Music was recreated in fall of 2008 along with an updated version of the MySpace profile.</ol>
