MySpace closed after power outage

MySpace, the world's most popular social networking website, has been shut down after a power outage.

Visitors to the website are greeted with a game of Pacman and a message saying the service hoped to be back up and running by 0400 PST (1200 BST).

An earlier message on the website said it was "undergoing maintenance" and pledged to be back within the hour.

MySpace, which lets users create a personalised homepage, has more than two million visitors each month.

There was no indication on the website as to what had caused the power outage at the data centre for the service.

No-one from MySpace was immediately available for comment.
