5 Cool Factors Of Microsoft Silently Launches Social Media So.cl:-
1.Cool factors of So.cl:-
When we last heard about it,So.cl(pronounced “Social”) was being billed as an experimental research project and was only available to students studying information and design at the University of Washington,Syracuse University, and New York University.While the project is still billed as experimental,it is now open to anyone who wants to give it a shot.
2.How Sign Up in So.cl:-
To get access to So.cl,you sign up using your Facebook or Windows Live ID.When you sign in for the first time,the site describes the experience clear.
3.What can do in so.cl:-
So.cl is an experiment in open search.That means your searches on So.cl are viewable by other So.cl users and will also be available to third parties.So.cl does not automatically post your searches,comments,or likes to your Facebook stream unless you choose this option.Also,we don’t contact your Facebook friends unless you invite them.
4.How it looks So.cl:-
After logging in you’ll notice the layout closely resembles Google+’s layout,but it also takes ideas from Facebook,Twitter,and Pinterest.You can follow other So.cl users or follow interests like food,art,or movies.There is also a bookmarklet feature that adds a Share on So.cl button to your bookmark bar so you can share content anywhere around the web with other So.cl users.Additionally,So.cl naturally appears to have close ties with Bing’s recently revamped social search.
5.Problems in So.cl:-
Looking at the Everyone feed,it is easy to see what all So.cl users are searching for and sharing with the world.But alas,one of the biggest problems with social search is that we don’t always want to see what everyone else is searching for.It takes a lots of time to post any thing or any link to the social media site.
As my own notion that if Microsoft does n’t fix the problems then it will be another flop show in the name of social media such as Google created history except Google+.You can read more about So.cl at the site’s FAQ page.
