I am surprised, now its Microsoft turn to look into Social Bookmarking business.
According to John Martin’s Blog, the Lead Evangelist for Server & Tools Online (STO) at Microsoft, the company Microsoft is ready to release a preview version of Social Bookmarks for both MSDN and TechNet team and showcase it at TechEd North America the following week.
Why they are into this business now? The reasons might be:
1. To get hold of all the technology related information from all around the world from various sources.
2. As Matthew Sparkes writes, “such a site could generate advertising revenue for the company, as well as collecting tag data which could be used to make web searches more accurate”. Revenue Generation? I don’t think they are really looking out for revenue generation but I agree when it comes to accurate search.
3. Guess – Any other reason?
Looks like there is nothing new or challenging when it comes to features. Cool as we can’t guess anything now, lets wait for the preview to release and will know how useful the tool will be.
Good Luck Microsoft and Good News for Techies….. :)
