MySpace adds a friend in Japan…and mebbe Yahoo!

It’s definitely amazing how MySpace is growing not just in the United States, but globally.  What many thought was just a fad, it is here to stay…at least for a while.  Although MySpace is available to anyone around the world, they are now creating special localized versions of the site in other countries including Japan, UK, Ireland, Germany, France, and Australia.  Who would have known?

Also, MySpace is joining with News Corp and Softbank Corp. to help fund the $5 million it will take to create the localized version in Japan.  Found of MySpace, Tom Anderson, says that he wants to create a “global community” where people can interact anywhere in the world.  YES!  GREAT IDEA!

What’s interesting is Softbank currently owns close to 40% of Yahoo! Japan and Softbank CEO adds that there is a possibility for a joint venture between the two companies.

How about that?  Yahoo and MySpace merging…
