MySpace Hires Some Social Smarts From LinkedIn

MySpace seems to be on a bit of a hiring spree. Over the past few months the social network hired Mark Rosenbaum as Chief Financial Officer, Alex Maghen as CTO (he was formerly CTO of MySpace Music), former AOL and Tsavo exec Mike Macadaan as VP Product, and former Facebook Director Katie Geminder as SVP of User Experience and Design. Now MySpace has recruited a product manager from LinkedIn, Christina Wodtke, to be the general manager of social.

Wodtke was previously a Principal Product Manager at LinkedIn and ran the activity stream (which recently got a little Twitter-happy), communication products, and the events application. She also built the search and marketplace design team at Yahoo, and helped to redesign search, shopping and local products. Wodtke will fall under the purview of chief product officer Jason Hirschhorn.
