MySpace, the social network owned by News Corporation has launched a new service in the form of an e-mail provider. MySpace Mail has evolved out of a messaging system MySpace used in the past. Users will be able to send and receive e-mails with the MySpace.com domain through the social network going forward.
MySpace’s 125 million monthly active users will be able to benefit from the new e-mail service within the next couple of weeks when the service is released. The mail service will have the same look and feel as Microsoft Outlook. Your MySpace username will be the same immediate username that you can use for your MySpace e-mail. For example, if your username is Tom, then your e-mail address will be Tom@MySpace.com. If your username is JohnDoe, then your e-mail address will be JohnDoe@MySpace.com.
It is a nice additional feature to have, but I think that most people are already comfortable by the e-mail address that they already have. Personally I do not care much for this feature, but I’m sure that there are people out there that do care. But to be fair I did not care much about getting my own Facebook username either.
