Non si è mai visto il debutto di un nuovo social network così timido, quasi sottotono. Ma per il debutto di So.Cl (pronuncia “social”), Microsoft ha scelto decisamente l'understatement, tanto più che il lancio è avvenuto proprio nel bel mezzo della quotazione di Facebook in Borsa per cui è passato, sul momento, quasi inosservato. Peccato perché, a modo suo, So.Cl è un progetto piuttosto interessante che, salvo per il layout che ricorda molto quello di Google Plus, si rifà più al modello di siti di cura e ricerca di contenuti, come ( o Searcheeze che a quello delle reti sociali.

RSS Feeds Directory for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. You can use this feeds directory to determine the RSS feeds of any of your favorite online service be it Twitter, Facebook, YouTube or something else. If you are old school like me and still prefer consuming online content through RSS feeds, this directory is for you. Most of the popular online apps and services – including the likes of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, offer RSS feeds but the problem is that you have to be a near geek in order to discover any of these feeds. 1.
