msn.jpgMicrosoft is set to launch an overhauled design for its web portal.

Social media and customisation are high on the agenda, with users able to import streams from both their Twitter and Facebook accounts. Video content will also feature more predominantly, as the site gets rid of its cluttered look of old. Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, will also be a more prominent feature of the site.

With so many changes set to feature, Microsoft are planning a staggered release of the new-look site. With attracting huge numbers of visitors and the new design pushing Bing to the foreground, nailing an aesthetically pleasing design could swing the web-search wars Microsoft’s way.

You can see a preview of the new site here. There’s no news yet on when it will debut in the UK.
