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.

Microsoft refers to the network as "an experiment in open search," meaning searches will be viewable to other So.cl users and to third parties.
