Hi Everyone!

I’m Jason, a Program Manager on the Windows Live Messenger team.  I’ve been on the team for about 9 months… I can’t tell you how excited I am to be working on Messenger!  I focus on the conversation window, personal expression, and other related features.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you can’t find the right emoticon or wink to express your feelings?  Or maybe that background or display picture doesn’t quite fit your current mood.  Like Madonna says, you’ve gotta express yourself!

Here are some ways you can find the perfect content to reflect your mood:

  1. Explore the featured content in the conversation window.  There’s a wealth of free and purchasable content right at your finger tips.  Click the "See more offerings…" link to see even more options!
  2. Use your own favorite images to create emoticons, backgrounds, and display pictures.  Images are everywhere!
  3. Tell us what you’d like to see!

Is there specific personal expression content you’d like to see in Messenger?  Head on over to the newsgroup and tell us about it!  Your idea could make it in to a future version of Messenger!

Finally… for all of you hockey fans out there, the NHL has content specifically for you!  Check out http://www.nhl.com/fancentral/messenger/index.html.
