How to Upload Text Documents to Facebook From Microsoft Word

Uploading and posting photos, links and videos to your Facebook profile is a simple matter of clicking the icon at the top of your page and attaching the desired media. If you want to post a document you create on Microsoft Word to your Facebook page, you can do so, but it requires you to visit a different website first. Fuse Labs' Docs for Facebook allows you to upload or create a Word document, Excel file or PowerPoint presentation and post it to your Facebook page.
