Myspace just announced that it will add a Digg-like news service on its site. Rupert Murdoch must think this area isn’t saturated enough. But heck, with over 100 million unique visitors, they’ll for sure generate more revenue with this service.
This is what the news service will consist of:
“The service, called MySpace News, resembles a mix of Google Inc.’s Google News, which collects stories and arranges them based on thematic similarities and Digg.com, which displays stories suggested by its readers and displays them according to their popularity ranking, executives said.
The news service, long rumored, will have 25 main topics and about 300 sub-categories ranging from celebrities and gossip to autos and fashion. “
