So.cl: Create a Video Party and Add Videos

Posted May 24, 2012 by Chris Luongo in Internet

One unique feature of So.cl from Microsoft is the video party. This allows you and your friends to interact in a virtual space and watch a bunch of YouTube videos while chatting about them.

In the flooded social networking space, the Video Party feature of So.cl is something that is truly unique. Even to this cynic, this feature actually has potential. The ability to watch videos live with your friends while discussing them is actually pretty cool.
