MySpace to offer calls using Skype

In Brief / INTERNET

October 17, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

News Corp.'s MySpace social networking site and EBay Inc.'s Skype will offer MySpace members free Internet calling services, executives from the companies said, in a bid to expand their base of users while fending off competitors.

Beginning in November, Skype's voice service will be folded into MySpace's existing instant messaging technology, enabling MySpace members to place free calls to other people on the MySpace and Skype networks.

Skype members will be able to link their MySpace profiles to their existing calling service.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
