It has been said before and many times it has been proven false, MySapce, the popular social networking site will start charging customers for their service.  However, now the most telling information has come forward about the plan to start charging people, and it comes directly from the horse’s mouth, Owner, Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch recently said in an interview, “We intend to charge for all our news websites, if we’re successful, we’ll be followed by all media.” “All media” would certainly include MySpace as well as other Murdoch websites such as Fox News.

Other companies who regularly follow Murdoch’s lead would likely copy the pay-to-view websites formula.

Since Murdoch took over MySpace, at one time an online social networking giant, MySpace has lost heavy share to rival “FaceBook” and over 700 MySpace jobs have been cut.

I honestly do not know of a single person who would actually pay to use MySpace, matter of fact I don’t know anyone who actually uses MySpace at all anymore.
