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.
“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!
