Microsoft Socl – New Social Networking Site
Coming to the Socl, a short name for Social is available at Socl.com. TheVerge guys have got early access to Socl, which is in private beta. Screenshot posted here shows how Socl will be. According to me it is similar to Google Plus but with some font changes. It may be a mix of Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus with some search advanced functionality.
Interface is similar to that of Facebook with a traditional Feed on home page. “Start a Party” and “Invite Friends” links are posted in the right side navigation pane. A list of people whom you are following will be displayed in the left pane, this feature is similar to Twitter followers.
Microsoft is tying to integrate search and social experience to users. Two kinds of updates - Status Update and Search Update can be posted in Microsoft Socl. Whenever a search update is posted, Bing results will be displayed in the feed.
Some rumors are already spreading over about the release of Microsoft Socl to public. Microsoft will follow other start-ups that works on invite-based system. As of now no further details are available, stay tuned to know more about Microsoft Socl.
