So.cl simply known as Social is a social media network by Microsoft, recently launched in May 2012. Microsoft is aiming to turn So.cl into a platform for young people to share useful information easily. Microsoft knows much not to try to compete with Facebook with their new social media network So.cl. The two companies have been working together for some years now, I can simply think of it as Microsoft trying to protect their investment with Facebook while venturing into a field they feel will become important for every big internet giant soon as its obvious Google has used Google+ to improve their products.
So.cl allows its users to sign in using their Windows Live accounts and Facebook accounts, another smart move by Microsoft. So.cl simply let users share Bing search results with others. So.cl offers features like Explore, Feed, Post, Video parties and can be used to share web contents. So many people may argue that there is already a market saturation of Social networks, but Microsoft was smart enough to target audience that will be willing to try something new. Now I want to discuss why joining So.cl can benefit bloggers.
How So.cl can benefit bloggers:
Joining So.cl may be necessary for any blogger whose audience mostly falls among young people mostly students. So.cl allows its users to share web contents found on the internet. The feed is categorized under ‘Everyone’, ‘People I follow’, ‘My interests’, ‘Conversations’ and ‘My posts’. By default it is on ‘Everyone’ which means most users of this social media network can see posts made by even people who are not their friends.
You can search and join interests that suit you. You can follow people and be followed as well. Meet and follow people of same interests and share your contents to people of same interest who are likely going to check it out since they already have same interest as you.
If Google favors posts shared on Google+ what do you think Microsoft Bing will do to posts share on So.cl ? So.cl can be a good source of traffic to your blog, yet another reason why bloggers should join this social media network. So.cl Video Party allows other users to see the videos that you have posted or viewed. Video parties allows users to search and create a list of their favorite videos to view and discuss with others. You can also host and attend existing parties and chat with others.
So.cl allows commenting on posts just like other social media networks, users can interact with contents in several ways (Comment and riff). Riff lets you reply to a post with another post. You can use this to recommend posts to others. So.cl helps users to discover and discuss the web pages they find interesting with others. So.cl enables users to interact, offering them options to share media/contents.
So.cl also allows tagging on posts which will then be used to categorize posts automatically on the interest tab.
