"BEFORE you install it you better read the terms of service"

May 19, 2008  |  By mycrosoftsucks

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

While it is not truly free to use, you do not have to pay them money to install it.

Cons

Read the rules. Microsoft will own the copyright on everything you create on your space. They can edit, alter, and delete anything at will and can profit from its use in any way available to them. If you feel the information you put out is of no value this won't matter to you, but what if you write something or post of picture you took or whatever that everyone thinks is great and microsoft uses it to make millions or billions and you get nothing? Just like google, myspace and all the other big companies out there, they profile every member. Their computers create entire profiles based on everything you search for, everything you write, every opinion you post, the music and pictures you download and share, etc. There is big money in profiling. Do you really think these companies are paying their employees and shareholders just so they can give you free stuff? Nothing is free. Oh and if you say anything about Microsoft or any of their products that is less than appealing they will delete your account.

"Nice space to create your blog"

June 14, 2007  |  By dmfn

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

If you have the time you can make it look very cool;

You don't have to keep giving the adress to your friends cause they can have access to it from Msn Messenger contact list;

Now you can add many gadgets to msn space & have even more stuff in there;

Easy to use;

Cons

Not too fast;

No blog comments control (sometimes it can be no good i guess);

No information/alert on photo comments;

"There's nothing to download"

April 15, 2007  |  By iricigor

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Visually nice

Cons

I am not sure why there's this link at download.com. There's nothing to download with this name. It takes you to register page for on-line web blogging service. This would be like you would be offered to download Yahoo mail or something like that.

"Questionable place to blog"

January 10, 2006  |  By ginro

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It has a lot of features, and, when its working properly, is accessible from Messenger. Communication between other users can be good. Visually excellent.

Cons

Not for serious writers.

Points against:

1/ Lack of control regarding comments. Trollish behaviour (the leaving of anonymous, and frequently extremely abusive comments totally unrelated to the Spaces content) is a serious problem on MSN Spaces, and the only defense against it as a user is to delete comments or disable comments entirely. There is no protection against anonymous users, nor any protection against people who choose to masquerade as other users leaving a perfectly innocent users name and url in the relevant section in the comment box. MSN's solution is to tell users to make their Space private, but isn't really a solution if the desire is for there to be a free and open-minded exchange of ideas is it?

2/ The statistics section merely gives a list of referral stats, and not the original site of the visitor. Again, this poses a severe security issue regarding abuse of the comments feature.

3/ Outages. These are quite frequent, and can last anything up to ten hours a day, for several days in a row. There is never any prior notification of these outages to users, who are simply expected to put up with it.
