Nice app and promising but Facebook only to sign up makes it limited because not everybody have a facebook account, Microsoft account would have been another option for signing up/in.

Seems great! It's just beta, thus 4*. But I can't wait to see it's full potential. Keep it up, MS!

Looks like it would be a good app but considering you have to have a facebook account in order to add friends and post articles, its pretty much worthless for me. I can view other articles so I give it a two for now. Let me log in with my Microsoft Account or Google.
