"Microsoft has opened to the public Socl, the company's experiment in mixing search and social networking. The site — which can be accessed at www.so.cl — was originally designed for students and open by invitation only." She added, "The site now includes more rapid viewing and creation of posts, easier people- and interest-finding, and virtual 'parties' where users can create playlists to watch videos and chat together, according to a Microsoft blog post."
It appears that Socl is a solid time-waster at this point. As more people join, the site should become more usable, but the question is: With all the social networks and content-sharing sites around, why would Socl ever reach critical mass? It is really that special?"
