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!

And I bet you, that it will be able to interact with facebook.

And it didn't take to much for MS to pull the plug.

It is far more likely to be a deliberate leak to create media interest.

Eurgh... the massive space wastage of gnome (and exacerbated by gnome 3) apps is the bigger fail in that image. Just look at the menu/titlebar...

That is more a Firefox issue, GNOME Shell only occupies like the 30 pixel menu bar.
