It's been a few days, Google launched its social networking website "Google+" and now Microsoft has accidentally revealed its secret social network project "Tulalip".
Microsoft Research team is working on a secret project codenamed "Tulalip" which seems a social network similar to Google+, Facebook or Twitter.

Socl.com is an internal design project from a team in Microsoft Research which was mistakenly published to the web.

As you can see in the above screenshot, it allowed you to sign in using your Facebook or Twitter account as well.
SOCL.com domain name sounds cool for Social network. What do you think? Was it a mistake or was intentionally done? Do you think Microsoft is trying to compete with Google+? Please post your opinion in comment...
