You might remember that in 2011 Microsoft launched its own social network called So.cl. It looked a lot like Google+ and was Microsoft’s way of keeping up with the Joneses. Surprisingly, there are recent posts there, but Microsoft is announcing that the service will shut down on March 15, 2017.
For those that have never participated in So.cl, much like those who still participate in Google+, you really didn’t miss anything – however, this may be the last place to see Windows Phone hardware in the wild. You can’t sift through a page without seeing Windows Mobile hardware in photos.
There’s also an official sendoff announcement: So.cl is saying farewell as of March 15, 2017
