The Register – Murdoch to bring MySpace to UK: News International has sent the social networking world into a tizz by saying its US-based MySpace.com will hit the UK within a month. According to the BBC, Fox Interactive Media president Ross Levinson told a conference in Las Vegas that the UK launch was on track, and that the initial plan was to “tap into the music scene”.
(Cheers to Nick for the heads-up.)
UPDATE – Five quid says that someone just made (or is about to make) a bundle out of the currently parked and marked ‘for sale’ domain myspace.co.uk – a WHOIS shows that the record was last updated, erm… today. The domain has been in the posession of Total Web Solutions (and appears to have been held and advertised on a speculation basis) since late 1997.
Oh, and some clever-clogs registered my-space.co.uk 9 short days ago.
