SocialWok is a new start-up that focuses on sharing documents online easier and more secure. Google Docs already does a good job, but their process is quite tedious. For example if you want to share a document on Google and IM it to a friend, the document has to be public. If the document is private on Google Docs, then you to log in and e-mail a link internally from the system.

Within SocialWok, you can publish links and statuses on Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed, or LinkedIn. You can also watch YouTube videos and monitor Google Calendar events from within the service. To share documents with certain users on SocialWok, you can add them to different limited networks. Socialwok also has a mobile user interface that is just as easy to use as the PC-compatible version. The mobile version heavily depends on HTML5.

To log into SocialWok, you don’t need to create an account with them. You can log in using your Google Docs account. The basic version of the website is free, but additional administrative services and dedicated services will be available for a price. SocialWok was a demopit winner at the TechCrunch50 conference.
