Microsoft launches Socl beta site

Social media project goes live for testing

December 6, 2012

Microsoft has flipped the switch on the Socl beta, with the social media website now live for anyone on the net to visit.

Microsoft announced the fact over on the Microsoft Research Fuse Labs blog (spotted by Engadget).

Fuse Labs posted: “We appreciate your continued feedback which is helping us to gain more insight every day and improve how we can all communicate, learn and share our everyday lives. We’ve been busy redesigning Socl to match how you’re using it, and starting today, we’d like you to give the new Socl a spin at and let us know what you think.”

The beta site has seen various improvements implemented, such as faster loading feeds, and a revamped home screen to better show off Socl posts. It’s also easier to find and follow people, as you can do this via posts, or from a person’s profile (profiles pages have also been updated).

“Parties” can now be created to chat and watch videos together, in an idea “borrowed” from Google+ with its hangouts.
