The new Windows Live Messenger from Microsoft aims to be the single window to your social world. The first messenger to offer full screen 'High Definition' video chat, the new iteration of Messenger also provides online games, photo and website sharing in real time and integration of different networking sites.

The new messenger also integrates Bing search, making it easier to add links, photos and videos without leaving the conversation window. Users can set their status by category — for instance, users can be online for family, while appearing offline to co-workers! The social dashboard gets updates from across social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace, as well as videos directly from YouTube.
