Sunday’s New York Times surprised me with ” Fox News Joins a Social Network, but Not Its Parent’s Site”
“Fox News Channel wants more friends. But instead of reaching out on the News Corporation’s own social network, MySpace, the cable news channel is choosing to network on the site’s chief rival, Facebook.
Think it has anything to do with MySpace’s existing partnership with MSNBC? Fox says it has more to do with audience.”
This is a sign of the maturity of social media, but even more so of News Corporation’s new media sophistication.
Many of our readers are big fans of social networking sites so I want to find out your opinions. If you were in charge, would you have done the same? Would you have used both or perhaps even other sites? Do people want to find and consume news in a social network? Inquiring minds want to know.
