Microsoft today announced it's launching a new Fan Lounge program in the UK, offering a chance for members of the Microsoft community to offer their feedback and get a look at exclusive content.

The program will work through a service called Sociabble, where fans can interact directly with Microsoft UK employees. There will also be opportunities to go to member-only events and "exclusive content." From Microsoft:

We're hoping to talk to - the fans - directly in the integrated comments section, invite you to fan-only events and also listen to feedback so that we can make sure that your voice is heard throughout the company!

If you're interested, Microsoft is inviting fans to fill out a questionnaire (opens in new tab), with queries about what you're hoping to get out of the program and what types of devices you own. Member will be accepted in waves, with Microsoft selecting from certain criteria. Entries will be deleted every two weeks, but Microsoft says you can re-submit the form once every four weeks if you aren't initially selected.

There's no word on what the exclusive content for the program will be, but it looks like an interesting way for Microsoft to garner feedback and gauge feedback from its biggest fans on a number of topics.

  • Well I registered - I'll let you all know when I get my free Hub 2 to test for them! However they say it is apparently 'social media heavy' and want your Instagram, YouTube and Twitter handles - since I don't have any of those (on account of not being 6 years old) I'm not holding my breath.
  • Andromeda confirmed for UK !
  • Question 13... Is really off putting... and it's mandatory... "which of the following companies you admire".... 😐.. I don't admire any of them. But suppose I'll just pick HP (a few others that I have had experience with but definitely not Google or Apple) as I have no choice but to pick one and since I still use a HP probook 4730s and have built a PC based on the HP Elitedesk 800 G2 Mini. Given the build quality of these devices and ease of configurability I'm more likely to consider HP products due to past experience and ongoing experience (Hp probook 4730s).
