Microsoft has launched its own social network So.cl have you been there? . So.cl had been in development phase for almost a year. The new social networking website is said to help students connect with each other.
“So.cl is not meant to replace existing full-featured search and social networking tools. It is an experimental research project using a minimal set of features which help combine search with the social network for the purpose of expressing and sharing ideas with rich visual collages, organized by interests.” says the FAQ page of So.cl. “So.cl uses Facebook authentication, which means you use your Facebook account to log in, and your name and profile picture from Facebook appear in So.cl. By default we do not post any content from So.cl into your Facebook stream. If you choose, you can post content to Facebook using the share to Facebook feature in So.cl. You can also log in to So.cl using your Windows Live ID.”
Microsoft says the social network is not pitted against Facebook or Twitter. Instead, it is an additional layer to the existing social networking concept – and accepts log in via a Facebook or Windows Live account. However, So.cl is quite similar to other social media sites, as it allows users to share pages of interest, assemble montages of media, and hold discussions.
The design of So.cl is many ways better than other social networking websites, it is faster , clean and easy to use but right now it has low user base on which mostly all networking websites are growing .
Like Facebook, users can follow other So.cl users or follow interests such as art and films etc. Users can share their activity on the social network with other users. So what are you waiting for? Join Now : So.cl.
