Now-a-days social networking is one of the most popular web tools to connect people with home and abroad, with friends and family. Facebook holds number #1 position as a social networking website. Microsoft is going to launch a new social networking website named Microsoft Vine.

Vine is designed to keep family and friends in touch when other communication methods are either broken or not particularly efficient. Times of crisis usually involve a breakdown in mobile phone or other key communication infrastructures, and Vine is designed to be as hardy as possible to keep people connected. Vine can be accessed via a desktop client (Windows only for now), text message or email. So what is it? Vine is a tool keep people connected during a crisis, but it is also used to for more mundane, everyday tasks.

It will gather local news (you tell it where you live or are at the moment). News items are gathered from 20,000 local and national news sources. Information from people you care about, such as alerts and reports, will appear on the dashboard too.

Recently Microsoft has launched its beta version and requested to get involved to create great communities and give feedback and ideas to make it great.You can take a tour click here
