Microsoft Tulalip: A rumored to be Social Network

Microsoft is planning to take down Facebook and the very latest social network by Google, Google+ by starting its own social network which goes by the name Tulalip.

Fusible was the first to report this news. Shocking as it came we noticed a welcome screen hung upon on the site socl.com which is short for Social. The welcome screen reads,

“With Tulalip you can Find what you need and Share what you know easier than ever”

Reports suggests that, Microsoft purchased the domain socl.com recently just two weeks ago, exactly when Google launched its social network. Obviously Microsoft was planning this way before. From what we know, the Search box where it reads OPEN is currently non functional. The Facebook Sign in feature too does not work.

The Twitter Sign in feature is where we have been able to gather more information about what this new service is going to be all about. As soon as you click it, you will see Twitter’s authorization page. In here glance over the application control features:

Read Tweets, Follow others, Update Profile and Post Tweets automatically

Now what impression does this give to you? That its some kind of social network right! Yes as nice as that news maybe to you, you will bummed to hear that its just a experimental app for now.

If you look at it closely, you can see that it says

Tulalip, By Microsoft Research, Experimental App.

Well it speaks for itself, we don’t think we will hear of Tulalip in a while as the service is currently under development. If you like you can check out SOCL.com yourself. Presently the page reads,

“Thanks for stopping by. Socl.com is an internal design project from a team in Microsoft Research which was mistakenly published to the web. We didn’t mean to, honest.”

I think Microsoft heard about its possible leak and posted that message. We certainly don’t think it was a mistake. DO YOU?

Speak with us by a comment. If we are the first one to get in, maybe who knows you would be the first one to get invited!

  • I think we have enough social networks by now. And I’m a bit surprised to read that since Microsoft have shares in facebook (remember that crazy 15 billion valuation?) and they have partnership regarding their search engine Bing too.

  • I’m so excited about this Tulalip. I mean, the challenge that it is facing is very great, just imagine how it will take down the very powerful Facebook. The battle between them and other social network will be very exciting. It would be like an epic battle.

    • yes antonia…i m also very excited. with the opening of facebook every other company is trying to open its own social network…its very hard to determine who’s going to be the ultimate winner! 🙂

  • The promise looks interesting, I hope Microsoft can turn this into a great social platform. More competition for Facebook.

  • Very interesting news. But I think they could have been more creative with the name of the service 🙂
