New web activities debut on Windows Live

So today was an exciting day at work.  Bright and early this morning we released 19 new web activity partners (the first release I’ve been around for!).

For the uninitiated, Windows Live helps you keep all your friends up-to-date with what you’re doing across the interwebs.  You just add web activities to your profile to import what you’re doing on sites like Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, and Twitter into Windows Live for your Messenger friends to see.  That way they can keep up with your online escapades in one easy place.

Today’s release brings the total number of partners up to 74.  Here are the new partners and their home countries (but you can add them to Windows Live wherever you are in the world):

A screenshot of some YouTube activity in the What’s New feed:

Your friends on Windows Live can see what you’ve been up to on YouTube (or on 73 other partner sites) with web activities.  Cool, huh? PS – That’s one of my coworker’s legs in the test video :-)

So that’s a bit of what I work on.  Glad to be able to talk about it now. :-)
