eWeek reports Microsoft will give its MSN Spaces a major upgrade to include revenue-sharing advertising features and a new partnership with Amazon.
The latest scuttlebutt is that MSN Spaces is partnering with Getzville, N.Y.-based Kanoodle Inc., a provider of Web advertising. This way, MSN Spaces bloggers can choose ads to display, and share in revenues based on the number of clicks generated, according to the sources.
Amazon is reportedly playing a role in the advertising push, but additional details are not forthcoming as to how this will happen.
Other new updates will be integration with the Xbox 360 console and Live Contacts.
