If things continue down this road, the internet will soon be one large corporate monopoly. Skype and MySpace have just announced a partnership that will bring VoIP communication to MySpace users around the globe. Like we really need that. The new service, set to go live sometime during the end of November, will allow MySpace users to communicate with one another by way of Skype’s internet telephony service, and this will effectively provide the missing link for MySpace’s social networking, with voice chat functioning as a sort of final frontier in connecting users to one another. Wall posts, instant messaging, private emails, and now voice calls? This sounds like it could get a bit scary. Imagine the Skype equivalent of MySpace spam announcing that you’ve won a $500 gift certificate to Macy’s.
