MySpace plans to roll out its own webmail on Thursday. Social network, like competitor Facebook, allows messaging—a much-used service—but this’ll give them their own addresses “@myspace.com” in what was described as a “logical extension of that relationship.” The new email service’ll compliment existing MySpace Mail personal messaging system and, because it’s a brand new feature and things could easily go wrong once used on a larger scale, the availability to MySpace members’ll slow toward a full roll out well before the end of the year. Some members already have access as part of the company’s testing and it’s being adjusted with their feedback as part of an iterative process that will be ongoing.
