Microsoft Launches Online Classified Ads Service In Beta

Windows Live Expo is an online classified ads service that has been integrated with Microsoft's instant messaging and mapping services.

Microsoft Corp. has released in beta Windows Live Expo, an online classified ads service that has been integrated with the company's instant messaging and mapping services.

Products and services can be located by zip code or city and within a radius starting at 25 miles. The listings are integrated with Microsoft MSN's satellite-image-based Windows Live Local, so users can view maps and aerial imagery of places were listings are located, officials said this week.

In addition, Windows Live Expo users can choose to view only listings specific to their MSN Messenger contact list or personal email groups. Through the IM services buyers and seller can negotiate and finalize deals.

Updates to listings, or new listings can be sent to subscribers via email, IM or mobile phone via MSN Alerts service. Microsoft expects to make listings accessible through MSN Spaces blogs in the near future.
