Full list: Windows Live to integrate feeds from 50 third-party Web services

Microsoft’s next iteration of its Windows Live online services suite will alert users any time one of their contacts posts a photo on Flickr, writes a blog on WordPress or a tweet on Twitter. The company announced tonight the integration of “what’s new” feeds, based on RSS, into many of its most popular Web services, such as Windows Live Hotmail, Messenger and a revamped, personalized Windows Live home page and profile page.

I’m still trying to track down details of the business model for these partnerships. Also, I’m wondering why some of the major social networking sites — Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn — are not on this list, despite them being discussed in interviews today. I’ll update with anything more I learn.

Here’s a list of the third-party Web sites that are partnering with the company (although only the ones in bold are available at launch):
