MySpace News on its way

In the coming weeks, MySpace is preparing to launch an integrated news service with self-aggregating content and social bookmarking. MySpace members will be able to post the stories on their profiles, discuss, promote, and submit their own written content to be seen and ranked by other MySpace users. If you consider that MySpace has been owned by news mogul Rupert Murdoch since 2005 and gets 230,000 new registered users a day, arguably more than most Internet news sites, the move isn't much of a shocker. As well, MySpace purchased news aggregator service Newroo last year and it seems the technology will now be put to use for feeding stories to the site throughout the day. There is definitely a lot of money to be made from the decision. My question to you: how many tech-savvy Neowinians are interested in a Digg-like MySpace news system?

Digg already exist, what use would it be for if it's Digg-like?

Besides, as Dakkaroth said, I doubt in their reporting abilities and ability to form coherent news summaries...

HAHA I want that shirt.

Yeah I think hes a total dick purely because hes automatically added onto EVERYONES friends list. I see no practical reason what so ever for having his stupid grinning face on every users page.

Interesting, weird, odd and funny news might be OK, as the "MySpace crowd" may be interested in that kind of news. But everyday news, no thanks.

This should be interesting, now all we need is MyFox and MyNetworkTV and we'll all be happy! Oh right, we DO have that. But, at least it's not tightly intergrated into MySpace.
