Description

Adding social capabilities to your Web site allows you to attract new users, keep them on your Web site for longer and get them to come back more often. In this screencast we explore this Web Application Toolkit that shows how, using a few lines of code with the Windows Live Messenger Web Toolkit, it is possible to add social capabilities to a Web site with instant messaging from a website to various client endpoints like Windows, Windows Mobile, Xbox 360 and Mac.  Behind the scenes is a powerful set of UI Controls and a JavaScript library that connect your website to the Messenger Service which is used by 330 million users around the world.
