Today the team is refreshing Socl with some much asked for capabilities.

  • Even faster post creation. Now Socl provides an inline post creator ideally suited for fast creation of text, link or single image posts. All of Socl’s existing capabilities are just a click away.
  • Streamlined navigation. Easily dive in to the content types you prefer to discuss or create using the Socl ‘app’ picker in the main navigation bar, or hang out in the main feed to participate in all the action.
  • Directed posts. In addition to public posts, Socl now also allows you to make posts visible only to you or to people you choose.
  • Collect while creating. Now you can collect your post while creating it, and creating new collection is easier than ever before.
  • More inline video support. Now in addition to YouTube, most of your favorite video services - such as Vimeo, Instagram, Vine and more will play inline in the Socl feed. Give it a try! www.so.cl

Happy Making!

Create Experiences

Picotale

Part “meme-generator,” part game, Picotales are little stories made by overlaying text on an image.

BLINK

Currently available for Windows devices, BLINK apps provide ways to capture, create and share short dynamic media using Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8.

Collage - now with upload!

Collage, Socl’s “go to” create experience now includes image upload…collages are comprised of images, links and videos found on the web or uploaded to Socl.

Video Party

Video Parties are shared video experiences on Socl - great for crafting a quick playlist to share with friends.


In addition to the create experiences, we’ve greatly enhanced Socl for mobile devices, with a responsive design that optimizes for your device. Now you can take Socl anywhere.

We look forward to seeing what you create today!

Happy making!

Today we made it even easier to share the Socl love… Now you can easily share any Socl post to more of your favorite social networks, such as Pinterest and Tumblr.

Simply click “share” at the base of a post you’d like to share… Below and left is a lovely post made by our own Cheri Walters. I used the new share feature to include this post in my Tumblr blog (top right) and on my “Love Love Love” Pinterest Board (bottom left).

Happy Making!
