Yesterday I mentioned in the my post that there was a rumor that MSN Live Pages and Myspace.cn would merge. The rumor was denied but a well known blogger wrote in a comment, “The news was likely to be true, just wait for a few moments.
Today it was announced that Myspace China will partner with MSN China to provide services to MSN China’s users.
MSN China takes outsourcing strategy to build its Chinese portal, it cooperates with dozens of partners to provide various content and services to its users. Content and service providers have to pay for several millions Yuan a year to be a partner. However, because of MSN’s heavy traffic and extensive user base among Chinese white collar, they still regard MSN China as an effective way to quickly expand their user base.
Myspace China is the new service provider of community channel of MSN China, previous partners of community channel are Mop (2005) and Qihoo (2006).
The question will now be if this will help Myspace China in the big battle of the Chinese social networking websites
Take a look at the MSN page on Myspace.cn.
