Writers for Fusible, who were the first to report it, seem to think so after a team from Microsoft accidentally published the splash page shown below to the doman name Socl.com. Members of the Google+ network were among those to take notice.
The project, entitled Tulalip, advertised itself in the splash as a service that lets users “find what you need and share what you know easier than ever” and there appear to be the options to connect via Facebook or Twitter. Also shown were non-working links for “See how it works,” “Privacy Statement,” and “Terms of Service.”

Sounds to me as if Microsoft is in stealth mode creating a social media platform. Do you think so and is this cool or what? Facebook, Google, and Microsoft all in social media. I think it is a good thing. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
