    If Microsoft entered that field FB will have no reputition as it has Xbox360 (Can usethat site it as default Social Network)..,

    I think it for teenagers but I am sure that it won't work and it is going to be a total failure. ;)

    As usual msft will drop the ball on something. They should just replicate FB model and push it on all their channels instead of making something "cool" (I use that term loosely:eek:)

    It can be possible that microsoft is trying to enter the world of social media as the world of social media is fastly growing, And almost every body has already entered tha market, like Gogole, yahoo etc so why should microsoft stay behind.

    Microsoft always try to enter late and fail most of the time, then again it could take off with them pimping it through hotmail and MSN.

    They're trying to enter the social network niche like Google tried to with Wave,Buzz. I can guarantee that it's going to be the same outcome.

    Why can't these search engine companies focus on what they started up with? SEARCH ENGINES.

    Yugo,

    it doesn't matter. People will flock to the social site that has the most people/site that their friends use.

    Why would MS name a site "wl planet"? Sounds strange to me. Either way, major fail.

    It's a major fail, as clenard said. It's still new and unannounced officially, so they could work on it for a long time. No competitor for FaceBook though. Yet.
