It helps you “find what you need and share what you know easier than ever,” according to a screenshot of the image.  According to the page, users can sign in via Twitter or Facebook.

According  to, the image was found on a Microsoft domain The site wasn’t in operation when the image was found.  As of the time of this post, the site read “Thanks for stopping by. is an internal design project from a team in Microsoft Research which was mistakenly published to the web. We didn’t mean to, honest.”

Tulalip (pronounced Tuh-lay-lup) is the name for a group of native American tribes in Washington state. Microsoft is based in Redmond, Washington. This comes just weeks after Microsoft-Competitor Google launched its own social network and has now reached 10 million users.
