I am quite courious to know what people think about this.
Check this article on Techcrunch where there is an in-depth explanation about the relaunched MSN Live.com site (check the video on there too). The site has been relaunched few weeks ago as a solid new social networking platform
It takes advantage of all your MSN Messenger contacts and all the content already published on your MSN Live Space
I reckon it’s very well built and it resembles pretty much what all the other main social networks are doing out there – including all the main tools like tagging photos of your friends, groups and all that….
You can also include apps tabs from WordPress, Twitter, Photobucket etc… which makes it even more personal and good for sharing external content
In Italy, and guys over in Milan correct me if I am wrong, MSN Live is one of the main blogging platform as Italians use MSN a lot and blog on their personal LIVE spaces straight through the Messenger.
The majority of my Italian friends have only recently started to join Facbook as this is becoming more popular in this territory as well – do you think LIVE.com could come back and have the bigger pie ?
In general, let me know if you think this is going to go anywhere
I reckon they have a pretty good chance…
