MySpace Goes Mobile for Free

The MySpace social networking Web site this week is launching a free cell phone version, supported by advertising.

The company, owned by News Corp., has been offering a fee-based, premium version of MySpace on phones through AT&T and Helio, but this is the first free offering.

Even if I had a MySpace page (a good, old personal Web site still works for me), I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want it with advertisements on my cell phone. Even Stanley Bing refuses to join the MySpace craze.

What about you? Tell me where you stand on MySpace at [email protected].
