So.cl - a new competitor to Google Plus

So.cl ("social") is a research project from Microsoft’s FUSE Labs.
So.cl - a new competitor to Google Plus

 "So.cl combines social networking and search, to help people find and share interesting web pages in the way students do when they work together. So.cl helps you create rich posts, by assembling montages of visual web content." says Microsoft.
But So.cl is just similar to the Google Plus and Facebook which allows to rich media sharing just like the upload video option from Facebook and Google Plus, and real time sharing of videos via "video parties" Similar to the Hangout option from Google Plus.
"We expect students to continue using products such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other existing social networks, as well as Bing, Google and other search tools. We hope to encourage students to re imagine how our everyday communication and learning tools can be improved, by researching, learning and sharing in their everyday lives" Says Microsoft, indirectly they are targeting to Google Plus, Since they uses Facebook login and their search API's are different from Bing and Microsoft claims it as a different product and not related to Bing.

Are your ready for the christmas celebration with white snows? Get in to Google, to celebrate it, Just open the Google search and type Let it snow. Then your screen will be filled with the digital snow. It will make the entire screen to froze. You can't click on any of the results but dont get panic, the search icon will be changed to "Defrost" button, just a click to clear the icy veneer.


Last month the searchers discoverd "Do a barrel roll" will lead to a role in the Google page. Similarly the let it snow is also working. The trick will not work in Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8, nor in older versions of Firefox or Safari. This code will work only in updated browsers.
