MySpace getting into mobile?

September 28, 2006

An article in MarketingVox quotes an analyst as saying MySpace are developing a mobile application. Now, I’m not a fan of MySpace at all, I find it annoying, full of people I don’t want to connect with and as with most social networks I lose interest and move on pretty quickly.

However, the idea of the power of MySpaces’ user base being available on mobile web is quite exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing quite what the application turns out to be.

Having such a huge network available on mobile could be the impetus that mobile web advertising needs to really get off the ground.

I just hope they execute it well and don’t mess it up! It will be really difficult to make a usable version of MySpace fit into a mobile sized screen in my opinion so it is going to be interesting to see the results!

More details and speculation of MySpace being worth $15B soon here.
