Microsoft launches social network So.cl, claims not to compete with Facebook

Post by Alex on Tue 22 May 2012, 6:55 pm

While Facebook is busy reveling over its recent IPO, Microsoft has quietly taken its own social network, So.cl, out of beta and opened it up to users around the globe.
So.cl (pronounced “social”) is technically not a Facebook competitor. The experimental research project developed by Microsoft’s FUSE Labs was designed to help students study by “exploring the possibilities of social search for the purpose of learning.”

“We expect students to continue using products such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other existing social networks, as well as Bing, Google and other search tools,” explained Microsoft in its So.cl FAQ. “We hope to encourage students to reimagine how our everyday communication and learning tools can be improved, by researching, learning and sharing in their everyday lives.”
