Microsoft to shut down its Docs.com file-sharing site December 15
Microsoft is shutting down its Docs.com site in December and advising affected users to go with LinkedIn’s SlideShare and/or OneDrive for their file storage needs instead.

Officials posted a notice of the planned end of service on June 9 on its Docs.com site. In that note, Microsoft attributed overlap between SlideShare, which is part of LinkedIn, and OneDrive with Docs.com as the reasons for the December 2017 closing. Microsoft bought LinkedIn last year.

Microsoft is advising users to migrate and/or delete content they shared on Docs.com as soon as possible.

Clearly, you can NOT depend on anything that is free.

It either goes PAY or goes away.

That, imho, reenforces Google Drive, Dropbox, and iCloud as reliable services.
