Socl lets you create, collect and share stuff you love. From rich visual collages to short animated media and memes, express yourself through posts that take seconds to create, collect, and share on Socl, as well as on Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter.

Now, Socl is available for mobile-phone users. Microsoft Research’s FUSE Labs group is releasing Socl apps that can work on any major mobile platform. Windows Phone, Android, or iPhone—it doesn’t matter: Socl is now the go-to app for creative people on the go.

Socl is a natural for mobile users. Inspiration often strikes while you’re out and about. Now, when you feel inspired or you just happen to be waiting for your bus, Socl will be there to help you share with people worldwide.

In addition to taking Socl mobile, a few weeks ago, Socl welcomed a new experience to its network: Kodu, a simple, icon-based programming language. Kodu enables users of all ages to create games on a PC, a Surface, or an Xbox by using a simple, visual programming language. No design or developing skills are necessary—just open Kodu and start inventing, now within Socl, too.

So, whether it’s creating collages, building games, or using the cool photographic capabilities of BLINK, now there’s simply no excuse not to let yourself go Socl. Try it out today!
