Windows Live Expo Launches in US, UK Beta to begin

WLExpo icon.gifAnother Windows Live beta product has graduated, this time Expo, the free classified listing site. Expo has been updated with a new look to fall in line with the Windows Live look and feel, including the Windows Live orb. The launch includes several new features, among them comments on a listing, driving directions via Windows Live Local, and a new set of APIs, available at MSDN.

Expo has received little promotion or marketing since the beta was released on February 28th, but it seems to be catching on, and received 1.2 million unique users last month. Of course the marketing should soon be upon us with the news of the launch.

While Expo is currently US only, a UK beta version of Expo is set to begin tomorrow, July 12th.
