Microsoft quietly launches So.cl social network [news.cnet.com]
In the wake of the IPO of social-networking giant Facebook, Microsoft has quietly launched So.cl [so.cl], its own social networking foray.
However, So.cl isn't designed to be a Facebook challenger. The project, the details of which leaked out last year, is designed to give students the ability to network with their peers to share information.
