  • I’ve never been to MSN Spaces, and I don’t know anyone else who hangs out their, let alone anyone who has set up a blog there. Most people I know are either on MySpace, LiveJournal, Flickr, or have their own blog (sometimes a combination of them, if they have different content to show to different audiences). Where are these figures coming from? Are Microsoft feeding selected content from MSN Spaces into other services, and counting those as ‘visits’? More to the point, they don’t mention how many people are actually using the service to publish stuff. I have a feeling it is not that high, hence this big story to try and drum up interest…

  • It’s not surprising. MSN Spaces is nicely integrated into MSN Messenger, the most used messenger client in the world. With the exception of HTML limitations on users, the blogging service is cool.
