Sharing Google documents with specific people

Sharing Google Docs or files uploaded to Google Docs allows you to collaborate in real time with colleagues, classmates, or friends. It also prevents you from ever having to send an email attachment again. You can share your docs with as many or as few people as you like, and you can give each collaborator whichever level of access you like -- and it's all under your control.
