By Suyomizzle, 5 years ago's social features saw some sweeping changes today to match the look, feel, and feature set of the Fall Dashboard Update giving people early access to the Beacons feature.

The removal of the "My Xbox" section of was just the tip of the iceberg. It was replaced with a "Social" link to bring gamers to their new "Metro" styled profile using the various panels that should be familiar to users of Windows Phone 7 or to those previewing the new dashboard update. From this updated profile, gamers can set Beacons and see what Beacons their friends have set.

The updated profile also provides Zune functionality with the ability to search and initiate downloads of TV and Videos to one's Xbox from the site.
