Microsoft just announced major upgrades to MSN Spaces.
- Search MSN Spaces blogs using MSN Search. The search index is still being populated and found no results for “kitten.”
- MSN Spaces member search
- Mobile versions of all MSN Spaces blogs, including search.
- Xbox gamer card integration.
- MSN Spaces is now available in Latin America, South Africa, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Singapore.
- Members can now upload up to 500 photos each month. The new photo uploading feature supports photo descriptions and comments.
- It’s now easier to make money with Kanoodle contextual ads or Amazon’s associates program.
- Over 100 themes to choose from.
- Shorter URLs.
The new MSN Spaces search appears to be a scoped MSN Search query with a new Spaces search UI based on the RSS feeds on the search result page. Adding “site:spaces.msn.com” to your MSN Search currently yields better results.
