Microsoft launched the revamped MSN homepage on March 9, with plans to make this new version available to 100 percent of users within the coming weeks. In addition to a newly streamlined design, the homepage also allows quick access to social-networking services such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as Hotmail and lists of the most popular topics on MSN and Twitter. Part of Microsoft's revamp also seeks to place heavier emphasis on local news. To that end, the new MSN homepage includes Tweets from users around your location and postings from local blogs. Users can create an MSN Local Edition, following up to three cities. In all, Microsoft claims it made 30 updates to the page, utilizing 70,000 pieces of customer feedback.
