Let the land-grab continue.
The big social networks are looking for ways to reach more people, and they’re having to partner. MySpace.com, the giant social network, will enter the European mobile phone market with an exclusive relationship with Vodafone, they just announced. This comes just as Facebook announces an agressive move into video, with Comcast. MySpace’s grip on the European market is more tenuous than in the U.S., where players like Bebo and others are tougher competitiors.
In a statement, MySpace said Vodafone users will be able to edit profiles, find and add friends, post photos and blogs and send messages while on the move.
MySpace Mobile will be pre-loaded on future, selected Vodafone handsets, the companies said.
Vodafone says it has 200 million customers worldwide.
