MySpace China is a Chinese-owned company with backing from MySpace Inc., the IDG venture capital firm and a Chinese investment fund, the company said. The strategy of having a Chinese company operate the service follows the approach of Yahoo Inc., eBay Inc. and other Internet competitors that have turned to local partners to run their China operations after struggling to win market share.
News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said his Chinese-born wife, Wendi Deng, is playing a key role in helping to launch the China-based service.
China has the world’s second-biggest population of Internet users after the United States, with 137 million people online.
