It’s that time again – Microsoft plans to roll out another beta dashboard update to allow for public testing of social networking features due for inclusion within Live. As detailed at the company’s E3 2009 media briefing, the initiative includes Twitter, Last.FM, and Facebook integration.

Said beta is scheduled to go live late October, which would give Microsoft ample time to patch up any issues that are found just before this year’s holiday season. If previous dashboard beta tests are any indication, these will likely go out by invitation only – meaning some sort of sign-up process will be involved.
