MySpace is planning on launching MySpace News in the second quarter of this year, a new service that will combine the news aggregation of Google News with the community rating system of Digg.
Will this be a strong competitor to Digg, or will MySpace News provide content for a sperate demographic? After all, I'm sure the MySpace population won't go crazy over the same Apple/HDR Photo/Self-referential/Consumer advocacy stuff that Digg does. One would expect the content to be much less tech-based and more pop culture centric. It should be interesting to see how this affects the online media scene and if Digg sees a drop in users.
