Microsoft launches Next Gen blogging services – Windows Live Spaces

Microsoft has started rolling out Windows Live Spaces, the next generation of MSN Spaces, the blogging service from the software giant. The new service includes social networking features designed to help users discover and connect with friends through their contacts and allows customers to personalise their Windows Live Spaces with gadgets. Microsoft also announced additional progress on Windows Live with the launch of Windows Live Toolbar.

“With the release of products such as Windows Live Spaces, we continue to deliver on our mission of bringing customers closer to the information and people that matter to them most,” said Steve Berkowitz, Senior Vice-President of the Online Services Group at Microsoft. “Windows Live and Internet-based ad-funded software and service are critical to driving growth for the company, and we are energised about the continued investments we are making to help provide consumers with a seamless and safer online experience,” he added.

Jaspreet Bindra, Country Manager, Windows Live and MSN India, said, “Windows Live Spaces, the next generation of MSN Spaces, is the most widely used blogging service in the world today. There are over six million photos uploaded everyday and 120 million unique visitors each month. Indian users will now be in control through Windows Live Spaces, which offers complete choice and customisation for their online experience.”

“Windows Live Spaces offers users the ability to manage their own settings, so they are in control of who is in their social network and who views their Windows Live Spaces site. Rather than encouraging large networks of unrelated people, the feature has been designed to put customers in control of their trusted social circle. Hence, making the users’ experience safer and more enjoyable,” Bindra further said.

Windows Live Spaces will also allow users to tell their story and customise their site with blogs, photo albums, music lists and more. Windows Live Spaces has been designed to connect users to their real social network of friends – people in their Windows Live Contacts list that is integrated across Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail and other services. Users who are already on one another’s Windows Live Messenger contact lists can initiate instant messaging conversations from within Windows Live Spaces. Customers can create a Windows Live Space at http://spaces.live.com.
