Windows Live Spaces to Debut July 15

Microsoft said Friday that it was preparing to migrate its Spaces blogging service to its Windows Live brand, and with the change the company will add new features and tighter integration with other Windows Live services.

Although no specific date for the switch has been announced, sources tell BetaNews the service is expected to debut July 15.

The most notable of the new features is a "Friends Module," which Microsoft had in limited testing for the past several months. The addition would allow a user to create a list of friends similar to Friendster or MySpace, making Spaces more competitive with social networking services.
