Microsoft launched a new social network this week. Originally debuting in May as a beta-version open only to select users, Socl is now open for everyone to try.

The social network is designed to offer both search and social functions and has a look that resembles Pinterest much more than rival networks Facebook or Google Plus. Users will notice an emphasis on images and imaging sharing in the layout right away.

To sign-up, users need only a Facebook or Microsoft account. Once using the network, they can share content including photos, videos and links with friends and other members.

Watch for Michelle Stark's "Click Picks" segment on WHNT News 19 This Morning from 4:30 - 7:00 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7th - to get more details on Socl.
