MySpace launched a news service on Thursday that lets members of the website decide which stories bouncing about the Internet are most deserving of attention.
The MySpace News service scouts the Internet for news ranging from gossip in online journals known as blogs to stories from media conglomerates such as News Corporation.
Placement of items on MySpace News web pages will be dictated by feedback from members, who get to rank stories on a scaled of "loved it to hated it," according to the firm.
MySpace News uses a search algorithm to scan websites and blogs as well as online newspapers and magazines. Items are organized into categories such as politics, sports, technology and style.
