Another new addition to the Windows Live Services, is an upgrade to the very popular MSN Spaces.  Did you know that there are about 120 million unique spaces out there?  In alphabetical order....

I've used MSN spaces for a while now, and I find it an excellent way to share photos, blog to my heart's content, view my Xbox Live GamerTag, and so on.  With the update to Windows Live Spaces, the whole process and system has stepped up a gear.  The look and feel is much more stylish, and it integrates incredibly well with a number of other Windows Live services such as Windows Live Messenger.

So, what's it all about?  Well, Windows Live Spaces is an incredibly easy, yet powerful way to blog about anything you see fit, display photos, music lists and so on.  Microsoft has also implemented controls addressing rising worries concerning minors using social networking sites. Users can control who may contact them through Live Spaces and also who can view their profile and site content.  By default, the profile of users under 18 years old can only be viewed by people who are in that particular person's instant messaging contacts.

Windows Live Spaces allows you to effectively stay connected with friends, customise your environment, and stay safe whilst doing so.  You can find out more information about Windows Live Spaces here.

If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can visit my Windows Live Space, which, il admit, hasn't been updated for a while, but it's still pretty cool.
