"Over the weekend, Microsoft quietly launched an experimental social network called So.cl. which combines facets of social networking, search, and media sharing with a user interface resembling Google+.
Users are encouraged to search for information about a particular topic, then compile the best results - textual content, images and videos - into a single post.
So.cl is initially targeted to students. It may end up being useful to that market, but it's unlikely to get traction as a mainstream social network."
