Rupert Murdoch’s social networking web site MySpace is looking at launching a site focused on India in the near future as part of its aggressive expansion outside the U.S., according to the WSJ (subscription required).
The India launch is to be marked with a rock concert and party on April 17 in Mumbai at the Landâ€™s End Amphitheater and followed by a MySpace Developer Platform workshop on April 21 in Bangalore.
The social networking space is getting crowded.
Besides Facebook and Orkut, there is HT Media’s DesiMartini,Â Reliance’s BigAdda not to forget new entrant itimes.com from Indiatimes.
We doubt DesiMartini, itimes or Bigadda will amount to anything ultimately. Typical desi copycat mentality of latching on to a successful product/service/business model!
