I was listening to the Windows Weekly podcast and at the end Foley mentioned Socl and that they were looking for beta testers for it. I went over and looked around. Now I'll admit I'm a facebook user, but probably not what would be considered a power user. And I have no idea what instagram does. I was just wondering if anyone here has messed around with Socl or has an opinion.
The site is at www.so.cl and a Microsoft blog about it is at blog.fuselabs.org
Curious about the thoughts of more extensive social network users on this.

It's less a social network like FB, G+, etc. but more a Twitter, Instgram, Tumblr mashup with Bing search at the core. So you basically do searches for things (or specify specific URLs for articles you want to link for example) then attach site links and images from the search to a collage, add a title and comment, then bam, you have an interesting cluster of boxes that form your post on whatever topic interested you. Others can see this, comment, like, follow you, etc. You can tag any post with categories for easy filtering. It's kind of neat. Like a big public library that people find things, then post for all to see and discuss. Very social, hence the name."Bro, you know I lift cause I use a Lumia 920..."

Seems like a good way to share articles and videos.
It would be a lot better if there was strong integration with mobile.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)
