business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

MySpace.com is a News Corporation owned company that was purchased in July 2005 for $580 million USD. The popular social networking website was started just 2 years before being bought by Murdoch, in July 2003. Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe founded the site that targeted musicians and bands, allowing them to interact with fans and share their music online. The site quickly became popular with teens and the 20-something crowd, giving them a place to meet, interact, and share information online.

MySpace.com WebsiteMurdoch had previously struggled to make much of an impact online. The lucrative advertising opportunities that were being reported by online companies like Google and Yahoo meant that it was only time before the media mogul sought to invest more heavily in the industry.

Even though the Internet revenue for News Corporation remains a small percentage of the overall profits for the company, MySpace has been an important investment. The social networking scene has become one of the hottest growth areas online with Nielsen NetRatings reporting that seventy million Americans visited a networking site in the month of April, 2006.

"MySpace demonstrated what we felt but now really drives it into us that the world has really changed.. that the average person who is computer proficient is self-empowered in their lives in a way they never have before." Rupert Murdoch Quote

MySpace.com is a major player in the social networking scene as it has received more than 50 million visitors each month in 2006. In the first week of July 2006 the Internet tracking company Hitwise reported that Myspace.com was the most popular website in the United States, putting it above the more established Internet giants like Yahoo, Google and MSN Hotmail. An impressive 4.46% of American Internet visits were to MySpace.com.

The popularity of the My Space web property has been helped by the ease of use, no joining fee, and the expanding selection of tools and features for users. They include web profiles, blogs, e-mail, music streaming, instant messaging, music videos, photo galleries, events, groups, classified listings, college communities and user forums.

"The Internet is about giving lots of people lots of choices. Everything we've ever done is about giving people choices."
Rupert Murdoch Quote
