MySpace has officially debuted its Canadian community, with a fully localized website, in both French and English.
“Our goal with the launch of MySpace Canada is to make the site even more relevant to the Canadian community. There is an incredible creative community in Canada, and with this launch we will be better able to showcase the artists, comedians, and video content that our users are most passionate about, while creating a truly Canadian home for our users online,” Travis Katz, SVP and General Manager for MySpace International explained.
MySpace Canada’s local community is part of MySpace’s existing global network with localized sites in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, and Latin America. MySpace boasts more than 100 million member profiles worldwide according to comScore Media Metrics, with nearly six million users in Canada alone.
Jane Tattersall, the company’s first Canadian hire, will oversee Canadian marketing and content initiatives in her role as Director of Marketing. Ms. Tattersall comes to MySpace with an extensive background in marketing and music having served as Marketing Manager at EMI Music Canada, General Manager at AddVice Marketing, and Manager A and R at Jive/Zomba Records.
