MSN Spaces worlds largest blogging community

May 24th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Right, has everyone recovered from the Office 2007 and Vista Beta 2’s yet? Let’s crack on with some Windows Live stuff.

Got a press release through from a college today and brought it to my attention – apparently MSN Spaces (soon to be Windows Live Spaces) is officially the worlds largest blogging community!

MSN® Spaces is the most widely used blogging service worldwide with more than 100 million unique visitors, according to data released today by comScore Networks Inc. of Reston, Va., an independent Internet audience measurement and consulting company.

comScore World Metrix’s proprietary audience report for April 2006 showed the total number of unique visitors to MSN Spaces has more than doubled in the past 12 months, from 41.65 million to 101 million.

MSN Spaces allows consumers to create personal Internet sites where they can express themselves in a variety of ways and interact with the important people in their life. The service provides people with a place to create and update a Web log, or blog, as well as share photos, music playlists and more. For example, more than 6 million photos are uploaded to the service each day, with more than 2.5 billion photos uploaded since MSN Spaces launched as a beta service in December 2004.

Now available in 30 markets and 16 languages, the next version of MSN Spaces, called Windows Liveâ„¢ Spaces, is expected to launch later this year with additional functionality including a social networking service and the ability for developers to create gadgets, new features developed by hobbyists and partners, that can be added to a Space by users.

Thanks Romain for pinging me earlier on with this 🙂
