MySpace announced at the Billboard Latin American Music Conference the beta launch of MySpace en EspaÃ±ol, a new Spanish-language version for U.S. based Hispanics. MySpace also revealed a new pan-regional site in Spanish for Latin American residents as well as further development plans for localized communities in Mexico and Brazil.
â€œWeâ€™re moving rapidly to build communities that reflect and respect the lifestyles of our diverse members,â€ said Travis Katz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MySpace International. â€œMySpace en EspaÃ±ol opens the community even wider, giving our Hispanic members the choice to share their experiences, connect with family members, and plan their social lives in either Spanish or English. We look forward to getting their feedback as we build out these new cultural communities.â€
The company also announced today a beta version of MySpace LatinoamÃ©rica, a pan-regional site in Spanish for Latin American users. More than 150 million residents from across Latin America will be able to access MySpace in Spanish through the new localized community. Across Latin America, MySpace will be working with local teams to develop relevant programming and unique partnerships most relevant for each countryâ€™s user base.
