It looks like Microsoft is the latest company to try their hand at a social network. However, So.cl isn’t designed to be a Facebook challenger. It’s designed to give students the ability to network with their peers to share information.
So.cl (pronounced ‘social’) combines search and social networking for the purpose of learning and is the latest experiment from FUSE Labs,” Microsoft said in a description of the app. Users log in to the network with their Facebook or Windows Live accounts. Once logged in, users are presented with a variety of suggested topics of interest.
With So.cl you can share your search and help others discover what they might be looking for. Fun commentary & discussions usually follow.
