MySpace plans Facebook-style news feeds
NEW YORK (Reuters) - News Corp's popular online social network, MySpace, plans to launch Facebook-style "news feeds" in the next 30 to 45 days, Fox Interactive Media President Peter Levinsohn said on Monday.
News feeds, which alert a user to what their friends and colleagues are doing, have been one of the most popular features of MySpace rival Facebook.
"The concept of a news feed is something we are very focused on, and we'll be well down the path in the next 30 to 45 days," Levinsohn told the Reuters Media Summit.
He said his company also plans to let users express different versions of themselves by creating more than one profile, for example one for family, one for friends and another for work.
The new feature will let you "express yourself in all those different segments," Levinsohn said.
