MySpace News has launched and they are looking for news sources to include in their index.
You can submit your site or blog to MySpace News via their Feed Submit form.
Using the form, publishers can submit their feed, URL and choose a related news category. We’ve submitted Search Engine Journal and will look for referrals from MySpace News.
Once stories are indexed by the MySpace News Meme-like news tracker, they can be voted upon. For example, this SEJ story on Click Fraud is indexed in MySpace News and has been voted upon 4 times.
Since it has been voted more times than other stories within the Search Technology area, the story is at the top.
Users have to be MySpace members to vote, but MySpace is also tracking votes by user IP or Cookie(my vote is still registered and personalized after logging out of MySpace), so don’t try spamming MySpace News via multiple MySpace accounts.
Given their Digg-like voting platform, I expect MySpace News to become part of many a social media marketing and news distribution mix, in the same fashion as Netscape, NewsVine and ShoutWire.
