Reboots MySpace in Quest to Recapture Young Crowd (Bloomberg).
“If the site doesn’t turn around, New York-based News Corp. will likely sell the business within two years, analyst Bank said. MySpace is worth about $300 million, Alan Gould, an analyst with New York-based Evercore Partners Inc., said in an e-mail.” – bloomberg.com
