Windows Live Planet is a new social networking site from Microsoft. Windows Live Planet is an online destination that allows you to connect with your friends or even chat to your friends online, make new friends and connect with them instantly. Windows Live Planet is similar to most of the other social networks, but is totally different in design and UI. Although there is no official news on the release, Windows Live Planet is linked from MSN India page.
Most of the controls and features are fast. You can invite your friends from other social networks or directly email the invite. The website uses Windows Live Hotmail account, so you don’t have to create a new account.
There is a feature called Scribble Pad which is very similar to Scrap book feature in Orkut (Orkut is very popular social network in India). You can scribble your friends and each scribble can be up to 150 characters in length.
Another good feature is the integration of Windows Live Messenger with the Windows Live Planet service. You can see online friends on the bottom left hand corner of the window and also you can chat with them.
Try out Windows Live Planet and you can see the difference.
