    It’s still too soon to tell, but I can say that we certainly are going to have a lot to blog about for the next few months. At this point you’ve probably heard something about So.cl.  At first I heard people say that it was going to go up against Facebook and Google+, even though anyone with a cursory knowledge would know that it’s not the case.  I also have colleagues tell me that this shows that Facebook is getting into search engine marketing, but I think that’s not the case either. But, what, exactly, is it?  Right now, it looks sort of like Pinterest or a social bookmarking site.
