Leaked Website Hints at Microsoft Social Networking Site

Are Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter collaborating on a competitor for Google+?

PCMagazine: Microsoft has posted a website at Socl.com that briefly displayed a welcome page for a service called 'Tulalip.' The site read, "With Tulalip you can find what you need and share what you know easier than ever," and it contained buttons for signing in through Facebook and Twitter.

The site has since been replaced with a message that reads,"Thanks for stopping by. Socl.com is an internal design project from a team in Microsoft Research which was mistakenly published to the web. We didn't mean to, honest." Still, the site has observers speculating on possible collaboration between Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter on a social networking effort.
