Microsoft Spaces takes on MySpace

Posted on Thursday, Aug 03 2006 @ 02:57 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft rolled out a big update to its Spaces blogging service this week, adding functions that it hopes would allow it to compete with social networking sites like MySpace.
The upgrade also features tighter integration with other Live services, including more customization options through the addition of gadget support from the Windows Live Gallery.

Access to the Windows Live Spaces site was slow Tuesday night, and it appeared as if sections of the service where still non-functional. Past updates have caused similar problems, some of which have lasted for several hours after the launch of new features.
