The story [internetnews.com]

Highlights

News Corp. is acquiring Intermix Media for approximately $580 million. News Corp. said the acquisition will nearly double its Web traffic to more than 45 million unique monthly visitors.


Perhaps Intermix best known property is MySpace.com, a social networking site, which is the fifth-ranked Web domain in terms of page views, according to comScore Media Metrix.

The entire Intermix set of sites will become part of News Corp.'s newly formed Fox Interactive Media unit announced Friday. The new business unit will manage interactive assets from Fox Divisions, including foxsports.com, foxnews.com and fox.com, as well as the Web sites of Fox owned and operated TV stations.


In June, MySpace.com served more than eight percent of all ads on the Internet, putting it in the company of Yahoo, Google and AOL.

I'd never heard of it before today. Should I hang my head in shame?

If you know teenagers or are on any musicians' mailing lists, then you probably would've heard of it before. Otherwise, it doesn't seem to circulate much in adult discussion circles.

i only became aware of myspace's presence on the internet when i started my latest rock music oriented forums and noticed a lot of the guys had links in their sigs to myspace pages - personal pages, band pages, whatever. It's a strange phenomenon, to be sure. It'll probably be a lot more 'in your face' now Fox owns it

This is interesting! I hear that large organizations have such online communities on thier radar. Rumor has it that GorillaeXchange.com and Friendster.com are being looked at too!
