Microsoft are to launch a slightly grown up MySpace competitor called Windows Live Spaces. Tech Crunch comments:

Live.com Spaces still isn’t as “cool” as Myspace or have the music angle, but it is a significantly more flexible platform and has a huge member base (especially in Asia) that is growing rapidly. It’ll be interesting to check out the comscore numbers in a couple of months to see what kind of growth it generates.
