Future Social Experiences (FUSE) Labs


“Almost everything you do online is done with other people—creating, sharing, discovering, and consuming content from friends and people you care about. Our group is focused on building new social experiences and understanding how social computing can impact our lives online and in the real world.”

— Lili Cheng, Managing Director, Microsoft Research FUSE Labs
