So.clA few days ago, Microsoft quietly launched their own social network named So.cl.

Yea, it is a lot like Google+, Facebook and all of them in a Microsoft wrapper. I am not doing a review here, Danny did one at MarketingLand.

One of the features is you can share your searches done on Bing or other default search providers directly with your friends in your timeline.

Sean Carlos shared a picture on Google+ of one of his "friends" timelines showing a recent search done on Flickr for the term [nude].

Yea, with the new Bing you can also share your searches but you need to do it explicitly. I think this is more passive and by default, your searches will show up if you are searching through So.cl?

Just be careful what you search for within these networks.
