Microsoft has unveiled a new premium social network in the developing world called PolySocial.
Users will be able to add and delete friends and posts from their Facebook account as they browse the site, with the company also offering an automatic friend list for people visiting a country.
PolySocial is also the first social network to be offered for people living in India, the Philippines, South Africa, Brazil and Indonesia, according to a blog post.
Poly is an extension of Microsoft’s social network Silverlight.
Users can use the new premium Facebook-style site to create and share social networks.
Poly can also be used on a smartphone, but Microsoft has yet to announce how the app will work in the home.
The company plans to offer the PolySocial service to its existing users in the coming months, the company said in the blog post published on Thursday.
Poly, based in the Netherlands, was founded by Microsoft cofounder and CEO Satya Nadella in 2012.
It has over 60 million active users in 30 countries, and is in talks to build out a native app in more than 30 countries.
The service is also available on mobile platforms such as Android and iOS.
