Yep. Socl is Cool! And I love being one of the Community Managers on Socl! Today was an exciting day with a big launch of the new UI (User Interface) with cool new features like Picotale and Blink. You can read about it more on the FUSE Labs blog. I could write some more great things about it, but I am a bit fizzled since I have been at this all day. So later I will post more to tell you my experience on Socl.
If you don’t have a Windows Phone for the Blink App, you can create it on your desktop. More information on this link: Blink App
One of our active community members, Bodgan Caraman from Romania did a cool cliplet using Blink . He’s a great guy,so you can ask him any questions to help you out as well. He is a brilliant geek as well. He has lots of resources for freeware and tech tips. But he also has his own grumpy cat. I guess he has a love hate thing with that famous grumpy cat.
You can also check out Adam Rifai’s posts. He is an awesome member from Australia. Many of the best tips are posts he shares with loads of resources and links on Socl. So be sure to check out : Socl Tips or his own Area 51 Collection . He also shares lots of Socl inspiration like this one:
Update on this post: Friday, June 21nd. New user with Funny Picotales
Another feature is Picotale where you can make your own memes. This user, Libby Zorn, with nickname Pizza makes the funniest ones. He did a meme saying saying that a creepy guy is making comments on his posts and that creepy guy was Richard Zaragoza who built Socl. Colleen, my manager on Socl did a fun riff after that.

Fun Blink of Richard Zaragoza and others at FUSE Labs when the design was shipped. Click on the link to see the effect of animated blinks.
Here is a video of how to use blink on your Windows 8 Phone:
