While rumors swirl that Microsoft might be considering buying FaceBook, the company is continuing to build out its own family of blogs, wikis, video and other community-outreach tools to connect with current and potential users.
The latest new social-networking site in Microsoft’s arsenal? Channel 8.
Microsoft Developer Mark Johnston posted a teaser on his blog for the forthcoming site, which seems to be targeted at students.
“(Y)ou can probably guess who it’s targeted at given my new job focusing on students ;-),” Johnston blogged.
So far, there’s nothing but a logo on the site. No word yet on when it will go live. I put in a formal request for more info; no word back yet.
