Microsoft Launches Windows Live Spaces

"As the online social networking scene continues to explode, Microsoft has seen fit to give its MSN Spaces online community a makeover. The company is ditching the MSN nomenclature and is now adding Windows Live Spaces to its ever-growing "Windows Live" brand. Other services in the family include Windows Live Messenger, Live Anywhere and Windows Live Mail." -DailyTech

Competition for MySpace. Maybe this one will be "cleaner" and less dangerous.

I don't think anyone will be able to compete with MySpace. MySpace is just too huge and well know, everyone and their friggin' mom has a profile there. It's going to take an insane amount of advertising by MS/MTV, etc if they want to compete in that arena.

Agreed, I think that MySpace has had too much of a head start and MS will want to be offering something much more attractive and worth the while of already eastablished MySpace users.

If they're smart they would mimmick the MySpace layout and usability features to appeal to seasoned MySpace users.
