20 Aug MySpace To Buy ‘ILike’ Social Network
Looks like MySpace has decided to buy “iLike”. The purchase brings together two social-media companies that want to deliver content to users, MySpace said.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. iLike’s dominant music application on is iGoogle and Facebook, among other sites.
In an announcement, MySpace said that the purchase won’t change the iLike experience for iLike users and the artists that use the service. iLike will keep its Seattle headquarters.
Brothers Ali and Hadi Partovi founded iLike in 2006. In two years iLike has become the largest music application across all social networks — with 55 million total users and 1.5 billion monthly impressions. No structural changes will be made among management or employees at iLike.
I actually enjoy ilike. I’m not so much a fan of MySpace. What do you think of the merge?
