so.cl social networking website

While all attention was at Facebook’s entry into NASDAQ, Microsoft has quietly launched its social networking website – So.cl. Company Another social networking site says its not a competitor of Facebook.

So.cl was an experimental research project that combines social networking and search, reports FoxNews. Launched 4 months ago in conjunction with the University of Washington, Syracuse University, and New York University, it was opened to the public at large this weekend only. Developed by Microsoft’s FUSE Labs its focus is on exploring possibilities of social search for the purpose of learning.

One could log into so.cl using her facebook id. Creating a post is easy and fun- find images and links on the web, and it would assemble them automatically to create a visual montage.

Its search is powered by Bing (known for filtering content by words for quite some time now).

Be careful when using so.cl, since all data will go public unless you mark it as “private”.
