The Hallways here are all a flutter as we celebrate with our MSN teammates. Today marks another milestone in the history of the MSN Homepage.
With a new, streamlined and less cluttered appearance you will be able to navigate more quickly to the information and services you use on a daily basis like online videos, local information, news, entertainment, sports, money, lifestyle and of course your familiar Bing search experience built in.
You will see Bing’s integration throughout the MSN experience in key areas including shopping, travel, local, and as a way of highlighting hot topics, trends or people. Detailed local information is offered on the new MSN Local Edition, which is the only local online source that smartly combines Bing search and your real-time community news, which is grouped by ZIP code.
But wait. There’s more. With the new MSN homepage, you will now be able to stay up to date with all your friends and social networks like Windows Live, Facebook and Twitter right from the homepage.
The new MSN homepage preview will begin rolling out tomorrow (November 4, 2009) and become widely available to over 100 million U.S. customers early 2010.
We encourage you all to try it out and let the MSN team know what you think. As always your feedback is important to all of us.
Congrats to the MSN team. The new MSN has never looked so good.
Kristin Meldahl and the Bing Team
