Microsoft OSNews writing about social networks? Yes, it happens, and today is one of those days. We all know Facebook is king here, with a massive userbase and a seemingly unbreakable hold over the market, with Twitter covering the more public side of social networking. Google does some stuff in a fringe somewhere with something called Google+ which tries to combine Facebook and Twitter, but it's effectively a ghost town with a confusing interface. So, if you're Microsoft, what are you going to do? Well, build your own social network, of course!

As for Microsoft, perhaps we need to add them to the 'death watch' list, along with RIM, even if it'll be a much slower death.


If MS were to die, who would replace them? Apple? Ubuntu? I'm sorry, but I just don't see MS losing market share, at least with PCs anytime soon.
