Microsoft is proudly touting comScore data that shows MSN Spaces is the number one blogging service on the planet. comScore World Metrix says the total number of unique visitors to Spaces in April was 101 million, more than double the 41.65 million of a year previous. And those numbers don’t include any visitors from China, where Microsoft says they have over 20 million users!
comScore Media Metrix says that in April, one of of every seven internet users visited an MSN Space. With Microsoft adding new features all the time, including Microsoft Gadgets, and providing an interface that is more advanced yet easier to use than Blogger, the only way Microsoft can lose is if it screws something up. Of course, that makes the move to Windows Live Spaces so important; they can’t do anything that might screw this up.
