Xbox Live general manager, Marc Whitten, has confirmed that the dashboard update which includes Facebook, Twitter, and Last.FM will go live on Tuesday, November 17.

“We look at things like Facebook and Twitter as amazing social experiences, but also entertainment,” said Whitten. “We didn’t want to copy and paste from the PC.

“It’s going to be great for current users, but it’s also great for new users who can see who is on Facebook and get their first 30 friends on Live.”
