I’m Avoiding The Social Ghetto With A New App

REDMOND, Wash. (CBS Seattle) – Microsoft has been granted a patent for its “avoid the social ghetto” feature for bloggers.

Microsoft’s patent states that a route can be plotted for bloggers to avoid an “unsafe post or being in an open discussion that is subject to harsh responses from peers.”

Created for mobile phones, the technology uses the latest emotional temperatures and communal norms when calculating a public statement.

The patent, written in a combination of tech-speak and legalese, was awarded to Microsoft earlier this week.
