    Please update. Like everyone else its a very good concept but it is unstable and slow! Update: A diamond in the rough that Microsoft will not cut: Sad.

    It is an interesting app and the fo us on content is really cool. I really wish this app is improved, and that they work on this network and make it a viable contender.

    I'm out of Facebook... changing to this. Please, improve the app.

    This... feels like a web wrapper... :( The only "added" feature is push notifications and uploading..

    I like the concept but U.I. Is difficult to navigate. Also very buggy and slow and could not figure how to share on Twitter and Facebook.

    Buggy. Login problems. Live tile won't clear message notice no matter what. Neat concept but it should be labeled Socl Beta.

    Is it just me or just any other feel that Microsoft’s product runs in windows phone like snail while other run so fluently, socl has great interface and concept is really good but you have to agree it run like .. I just see a white screen all the time. Speed of the app should be addressed and the flicking of the screen and auto loading.

    Entertaining, but i cant use it This makes me just as mad as the People Hub. This app auto refreshes and makes you lose your place in the feed everytime you tap on anything, then go back. I wish Microsoft would learn from Twitter, how to develop a manual refresh app before they start to bleed more customers.
