I wonder whether there is still some space for a new social network. Microsoft thinks so. It has quietly launched So.cl, which it describes as a social-search tool to share information and meet people with common interests.
So.cl is an experimental research project focused on the future of social experiences and learning, especially among younger peopleMicrosoft said Monday in an e-mail.
The tool was launched late last year for students at a handful of colleges and universities. Last week, the company quietly made it available to anyone for a public beta test period.
