Microsoft's Tulalip social media service is no Facebook or Google+ killer | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Microsoft accidentally briefly opened the curtain on a new social media service it's working on called Tulalip, before turning off access. It's not quite clear at this point what Tulalip will be, but one thing is clear: It's no Facebook or Google+ killer.

Microsoft Leaked Its Own Social Networking Secret, Then Swore It Was Accidental - TechCrunch

Microsoft Leaked Its Own Social Networking Secret, Then Swore It Was Accidental - TechCrunch | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Hot on the heels of all this Google+ madness, Microsoft has “unintentionally” leaked its own social networking platform.

From the looks of Tulalip, this will likely be a venture into “social search” with Bing running the show. “With Tulalip you can Find what you need and Share what you know easier than ever,” reads the teaser tagline. Notice the capitalization of Find and Share? Yep, we’re pretty sure this will be where search meets share, which is kind of good news since you can’t do a Google search within Google+ (What’s that all about, anyways?). Oddly enough, there are Facebook and Twitter log in fields on the teaser page, which leads us to believe that this will be a rather light foray into social networking rather than a heavy-duty Microsoft experience. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em right?

Is Microsoft Following Google Again?

On Friday, technology blogs picked up on a possible Microsoft social media application called Tulalip. The app said on its front page "With Tulalip you can find what you need and share what you know easier than ever," before Microsoft developers quickly took it down.

The application allowed users to log-in through Facebook and Twitter accounts and by design of the site, allow users to share content in some way. The company wrote that it was simply an internal design project but there definitely seems to be something going on there.

What's funny about this whole discovery is its timing. The technology world has recently been obsessed with Google's latest entry into the social media market, Google+.

Is Microsoft just playing follow the leader with Google again?
