New network – by Michael Kogan

Microsoft has lifted the lid on So.cl, a social network that was rumored to be an intended rival to Facebook. The project is intended to facilitate collaborative learning, and isn’t a precursor to a general-interest social network, lead researcher Lili Cheng says. “The rumors were all that we were taking on Facebook, and that’s not our goal,” Cheng said in her interview with Michael Kogan. “So.cl is really an experimental research project focused on how social networking and search can be used for the purpose of learning.”
