Ready for another social network? Microsoft is opening up its social network – the aptly named Socl – to the public. Originally a research project by Microsoft Research FUSE labs, Socl was meant to be a social search tool for students. Launched in beta last year to Microsoft employees and university students, it enables people to connect based on shared interests and activities. Much more Pinterest than Facebook, the new network is driven by visual content. Users can create collages made up of links, images, captions and videos.
Will you be joining Socl?
