With already-established support for Google Apps and Yahoo accounts, yesterday Zoho added a social layer by integrating the ability to login through Facebook Connect.
Access Zoho Apps! With Facebook!
Forget your Zoho login information, all you need is your Facebook credentials. Plus, the combination of the two means you can share documents with Facebook users who don’t have a Zoho account. Logging in is simple; you'll see the Facebook icon right on the screen:
Login to Zoho with Facebook Connect
This is not to be confused with Zoho’s Facebook app, which allows users to create documents within the popular social network, and view/edit them from Zoho Writer, Sheet and Show.
And the Beat Goes On…
Zoho has tirelessly competed against Google Apps and the like for quite some time now. Their new adoption of Facebook Connect falls in line with the enterprise’s obvious turn towards social solutions, as well as promise a boost in users (how can it not when Facebook comes with a whopping 400 million users themselves?)
But Google is a pretty big—if not the biggest—fish. In recent times, we've seen the G team expand the use of Apps with new collaboration features, and various activities with Google Apps Script. Zoho, on the other hand, is smart for adding more support for what looks like is shaping up to be Google's biggest competitor. But we wonder, after this what moves are left for Zoho?
