Windows Live MessengerIt’s really easy to forget that some social media still occurs through instant messaging applications, as a reminder Microsoft today has officially launched Windows Live Messenger for iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

The new app lets users chat with their Windows Live friends and their Y! Messenger buddies. The program also lets you see what your friends are up to on popular social networking services which includes Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and Myspace. Users can also comment on their friends social pages directly from the application.

Not enough for you? how about photo uploading with caption creation capabilities, the option to create photo albums right from your iPhone or iPod Touch and the choice to receive IM notifications even when the app isn’t loaded.

I guess we should mention that you can also access your Hotmail account from the program.

Here’s a quick look at the rather simple layout, notice the simple to access icons at the bottom of the right side screenshot which makes it simple to change between your social networks, friends, chats and photos. Very simple, yet very effective.
