MySpace chief works it on Facebook

November 26, 2007

levinsohn.jpgHe may be the chief of MySpace parent Fox Interactive Media, but Peter Levinsohn thinks it and rival social networking service Facebook can co-exist. In fact, he has an account on Facebook as well.

He spells out the differences between MySpace and Facebook after we asked about his own media consumption habits.

“MySpace for me is much more of a media platform, and it’s a place to go for discovery,” he said at the Reuters Media Summit in New York. “Facebook I use more to communicate with people at work… Frankly I find MySpace substantially more entertaining.”

When Levinsohn’s not checking up on his work friends, he’s checking his Blackberry, he said. Rounding out his technology arsenal are three game consoles at home: the PlayStation 2, the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii.

interesting comments, I agree that my space is a media platform. although I mostly think that media could be restrained a bit more on some pages.
