Social Networking remains one of the key features that helps to not only drive a sense of "community" amongst web users, but also helps to drive visits to sites. In this episode, I meet with Keiji Kanazawa - Program Manager for Windows Live Messenger - to discuss the new Windows Live Messenger Web Toolkit. It allows you to very easily add very flexible support for integrating social networking into your site, while at the same time leveraging the huge install base of Windows Live Messenger users.
