When was Myspace founded?
Myspace was launched by Brad Greenspan, Chris DeWolfe, Josh Berman and Tom Anderson in 2003, growing to be the biggest social media platform in the world before being aquired by News Corporation in July 2005 for $580 million. Following what could be described as a rough few years – due to dwindling user base and a high profile hack – in 2012, News Corp sold it to Specifoc Media for $35 million. Source: BBC News
