MySpace launches Web IM for the UK

MySpace has launched Web IM in the UK. Thus, users no longer need to download anything to use instant messaging to reach their MySpace friends. Previously the site pushed the installed Windows version of MySpaceIM but that looks highly likely to be completely supplanted by the Web version. Web IM now appears in the right corner of any MySpace page for the IM bar.

It’s part if an overall push for web services for the site. Yesterday MySpace launched its official toolbar, giving users immediate access to their MySpace activity notifications regardless of what site they’re currently browsing on the web. The toolbar is available on Windows for Firefox and IE users, as well as on Mac for Firefox (there’s no Safari support yet). You can get it here.

    Is MS launching an IM news? They should have done it years ago and IMHO it’s far too late to be launching now.
    BIG FAIL.
