MySpace sold for $35m to Specific Media (and Justin Timberlake)

US ad firm Specific Media and singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake have teamed up to buy News Corp's Myspace for a reported $35 (£22m). The sale figure, reported by the Wall Street Journal, is much less than the $100m Rupert Murdoch's was seeking for the once market-leading social network.

News Corp had bought Myspace for $580m in 2005, and it will now retain a minority stake in the company. For the last two years, the site has been struggling to compete with new players such as Facebook, which now has over 30 million registered users in the UK alone.

News Corp to sell MySpace- half of staff to go?

News Corp. is on the verge of selling Myspace and a deal could include laying off more than half of the troubled social network's staff, according to a news report. The Wall Street Journal quoted a "person familiar with the matter," saying that there were two leading bidders for Myspace; digital ad-targeting firm Specific Media and private equity firm Golden Gate Capital.

The News Corp.-owned Journal said a deal would include shedding more than half of Myspace's staff of about 500 people. The WSJ said the buyer would pay significantly less than the $100 million News Corp. had hoped and the Rupert Murdoch-owned company would retain a small stake in Myspace.

Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence March 2011

Getting search right just got tougher.

This month's shift in the Google algorithm saw massive swings in the rankings of many brand and retail sites, cleaning up much of the spam but creating a few surprises along the way. Good news for the white-hat techniques of best practice, but bad news for many agencies who had been using link farms to bolster the clients' rankings. Getting search right is such a fundamental of web marketing that without it nothing else in the digital mix works properly. It's a core part of the always-on in digital marketing. And other engines are going even further in the war on spam and simply banning sites that don't make the grade.

This month's digital strategy healthcheck? Think beyond the brand and look for your new position on the category terms you need to be famous for. Track the movement, see where your competitors are and make a plan to climb higher up the listings.

Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence January 2011

Effective digital strategies will be increasingly dominated by new structures and approaches this year. Many agency functions will shift client-side and a new balance in staffing will emerge.

Digital capability is a key driver of competitiveness, and with Facebook and relationship marketing moving to the heart of the digital mix, most firms need to be more hands-on in producing their content and managing their social relationships. It's not only a cost saving and a leap in ROI, but gives a far greater economy of scope having the digital expertise inside the team rather than at the end of an email.

Success strategies are shifting, and the stories we're tracking as the year started echo this. Watch out for key functions moving in house, including relationship marketing, social media management, website content creation and support. There is still a role for specialists for the more advanced issues and the creative big idea, but team structures by the end of 2011 should look significantly different from those today.

MySpace to lay off half of workforce

MySpace is reportedly about to lay off more than half of its employees as the former social networking market leader scales back its ambitions. According to Dow Jones Newswires, the layoffs are tipped to involve around 500 people (of the site's current staff of 1000). The business hopes to continue its major strategic overhaul in a last-ditch attempt to stave off its dismal financial position. However the move could also signal the start of News Corporation’s termination of its ownership of the site.

MySpace sheds 30 jobs in China as CEO exits

MySpace's China office has reportedly cut about 30 employees last month and saw its CEO depart, signalling the social network might be withdrawing from the market. An employee at Myspace China reported the staff cuts when asked on Monday. He would not disclose how many employees remain. A Chinese news report, however, said that about two-thirds of the staff had left the office. The Chinese version of MySpace was launched with a beta version going online in 2007. The site, however, has advertised itself more as a social networking platform for music fans.

Murdoch to sell off Myspace?

News Corporation is reportedly willing to sell Myspace, the former social media market leader it bought back in 2005. MySpace COO Chase Carey told Reuters that the company is open to a sale, partnership, or some other option.

“There are opportunities here to do 20 things… but that doesn’t mean you’re going to do any of the 20. If there’s something there that makes sense you ought to think about it,” Carey said. Myspace’s recent redesign and rebranding efforts are an attempt to make the site more attractive to possible buyers, and Carey stuck by his position that the social networking platform had “quarters, not years” to turn itself around. “We need to deal with this with urgency,” he said today.
