Latest from the “rumor” mill, the upcoming Facebook announcement on Nov’15th — a invite-only event will have the launch of Facebook’s e-mail offering Project “Titan”. Titan, according to the buzz, will be a new full-featured Web mail product like Gmail, Hotmail, etc.
A source close to Microsoft said “the Facebook’s Nov’15 event will, indeed, be focused on Facebook’s new e-mail product. So what makes the event potentially interesting for Microsoft, its customers and partners? According to source, the new Facebook e-mail will include Office Web Apps integration.”
Microsoft already provides its own Facebook + Office Web Apps mash-up, known as Microsoft Docs. Via Docs, Office Web Apps users can share their documents via Facebook with their friends. But the source says Facebook’s upcoming event will take things a step further by directly integrating Office Web Apps access into the new Facebook e-mail — much like Microsoft does now with Hotmail.
“The Office team has been working on this for a while now,” with Facebook, my source said.
