Lots of social networking sites are coming out everyday and most of them are very much similar to each other in terms of features and concept. But now Microsoft is going to change the social networking scene a bit.
Microsoft has launched a social networking site specially for the students, called SO.CL . SOCL is developed by the Microsoft Fuse Labs and it is having some nice features which makes it different. SOCL is in private beta now and very few invites are sent worldwide.
SOCL looks very much like the Google Plus in looks. One of the highlighted feature of the SOCL is Social Search. Microsoft SOCL is having a Video Party Area where users can share the videos, It also supports the HD videos. For login purpose, SOCL uses the Facebook API.
Since most of the social networking users are students these days, it will be interesting to see how much they are going to like the Microsoft SOCL.
