Socl gets new design “Me Page” from Microsoft Research

What's This?

"Socl gets new design Me Page from Microsoft Research"

Socl is a research project from Microsoft Research FUSE Labs and began as an experiment in social search targeted at students for the purpose of learning. Following the lead of the Socl community, Socl has since evolved to be a service where people connect over shared interests expressed through beautiful posts that take only seconds to create.

Socl makes it easy to create a beautiful post you’re proud to share. Simply use the post creator to find interesting images, links and videos on the web and let the post creator do the rest – your selections will be automatically assembled into a compelling collage in just seconds.

{Riff in Socl}

"Riff Socl"

A riff in Socl is a visual response to a post, usually extending the original post in some manner thereby providing a way to continue a conversation visually. All the posts in a riff are viewable together using view riffs – the post that inspires the riff is clearly marked and attribution is also given to the riff post as well.

{Interests in Socl}

"Interest Socl"

Socl Interests are public groups organized around post content.

Socl makes it easy to connect with people from all over the world who share your interests – whatever they may be. Socl Interests are dynamic and crowd-sourced so the possibilities are virtually limitless. Create your own post about football, tag it, and discuss it with other football fans on Socl. From food to football; tech to tectonics – you’ll likely find the topic on Socl and enjoy connecting with like-minded people.

{People on Socl}

"People Socl"

Socl is an open social network where people connect around posts and choose to follow people, interests, or both. While you may discover some of your Facebook friends on Socl, you will more likely discover new people or topics you’d like to follow.

{Me Page}

"Me Socl"

Every Socl user has a Me Page which is created once you’ve signed in on Socl using your Facebook or Microsoft account.

From your Me Page, you can see a feed of all the posts you’ve created or interacted with or, if you prefer, you can see your feed organized by conversation. From Me, you can:

  • See all the posts you have created
  • Manage the Interests you follow
  • Manage the People you follow
  • See the video parties you have created
  • Manage settings for Socl such as profile information (picture and bio), preferences for language and notifications and more.

{Video Party}

"Video Socl"

A Video Party is a shared video experience. Socl lets you search and quickly assemble a list of videos to view and chat about together, in real time if you like. You can create your own party, or join an existing party created by another person.
