Help Microsoft to launch social networking site Tulalip
Advertisement
#1
Information 
San Francisco: Forget Facebook and Google Plus, here comes Tulalip! While the world still awaits the public launch of Google's 'Facebook-Killer' Google+, rumors started doing rounds about the possible launch of a new social networking website from the software giant Microsoft.

According to media reports, Microsoft is working on a secret project to launch a new social networking site to compete with market dominator Facebook and new-born baby Google+. Microsoft accidentally published a splash page under the domain name Socl.com.

When the mistake was noticed by various technology writers and bloggers, Microsoft replaced the 'Tulalip' project with a brief message that reads, "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."

But by the time, some of the bloggers managed to take screenshots and identify the nature of the project. Reports added that Tulalip is a service that lets users "find what you need and share what you know easier than ever." There was options to connect Facebook and Twitter, but interestingly, no integration with Google+.

The technology blog, Search Engine Land says, "It’s far too soon to speculate if this some kind of Microsoft response to Google+, but as Fusible points out in a different article, Microsoft’s domain activity — which may include a purchase of social.com, too — has all happened in the past two weeks, after Google+ launched on June 28th."

A Microsoft spokesman replied to Search Engine Land saying that Tulalip is an internal design project from one of Microsoft’s research teams which was mistakenly published to the web.

But, still some thing fishy? Let's wait and watch Microsoft's secret plan to dive into social networking market. So, stay tuned for more updates.
