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!

MS is incredibly late to the social networking party.


A very smart strategy. Learn from others mistakes.

Toyota (1937) and Volkswagen (1937) were 30 years late entering the car business. They are now doing extremely well. Over 99% of the car companies founded before 1910 no longer exist.
