“Microsoft is entering the social networking market currently led by News Corp.’s MySpace.com and Friendster with its own entry, Wallop.”
Although no specifics have been unveiled, MS claims the new site will offer users "an entirely new way for consumers to express their individuality online"
I found a few small screen captures on MS Research site. Wow... it definitely looks interesting and the social mapping interface (albeit small) definitely looks promising.
Update: MS Spins off Wallop to Startup.
