We had Friendster, Hi-5 (in case anyone can remember), MySpace, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and now Google+.Looks like Microsoft is also willing to join the race.It looks like Microsoft has a new social network in the works, called Tulalip, which the company has just leaked on Socl.com, a website which was registered by Microsoft back in 1998.
The splash page has since been taken down, leaving only the message:
“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.”
The description which was found on the splash image read “With Tulalip you can Find what you need and Share what you know easier than ever.” We’re not sure what Microsoft has planned for Tulalip, although some are thinking it might be another social networking platform as the URL might be short for “social”.
