Future of Engagement: What is Microsoft So.cl?

Microsoft launched So.cl, a social research tool. It was only available to students until recently. It’s a slick layout that looks like it takes some of the best aspects from Google+ and Pinterest, with a curious nod to MySpace. Users can sign in using Facebook, so it is not an immediate competitor, but more of an integration option.

Users can search by topics or trends, start or follow conversations about them, and plenty of other options. Twitter is buzzing with questions: Will So.cl survive social media world? Why do people change social networks? As social and search continue to converge, brands and SME’s will need to take new tools that combine social and search into account when planning marketing.

In this episode of Future of Engagement, Murray looks at the So.cl network’s soft launch, what social media commenters think, and digs further into what this all means for your brand.
