It has been two years since i used Live Messenger, and it appears that i was their only customer. Only my international friend and i were talking regularly on it for several years until she told me to use Skype. I assume that I bought around $100 worth of international calls.
To be honest, I rarely used WLM.
Furthermore, the newest version of the program seems to be extremely bloated, or woefully inefficient.
It takes a long time to install - and similarly so to remove from the system.
Since Skype included WLM contacts in 5.11 Beta version (am on v6 now of course), I decided it was prudent to remove WLM for good from my system.
At least its one less software to worry about (and seemingly inefficient one at that).
That said,, while Skype is rather reliable, it has the kludgiest interface imaginable - one almost up to MS's standards! With no configurable contact customization, and a non-configurable user interface it is a pain in the ass to use despite its greater reliability.
Heck I would be ecstatic if they simply copied Yahoo Messenger's interface - which is by no means perfect but still light years ahead of Skype.
And Skype support for paid user accounts? It makes PayPal look efficient!

What has Messenger got to do with social? Nothing, totally wrong track there
OK, you can import Facebook contacts into Messmger, but you can do Facebook integration with just about everything these days so not exactly Microsoft pushing it, more Facebook pushing it
Good troll attempt though, keep practicing, maybe by the time you get to be 15 years old you will have mastered some of the more subtle points of the troll master
