Rupert Murdoch will not be happy but the co-founder of MySpace’s parent company before it was sold to News Corp in 2005 says the global battle against Facebook is over.

Facebook, said Los Angeles-based Brett Brewer, will dominate MySpace in worldwide user numbers.

Facebook and MySpace between them have around 280 million active users while Microsoft claims to reach about 500 million users a month worldwide through it various online networks and gaming ventures.

In an interview with the Herald this week from Los Angeles, Mr Brewer, who co-founded InterMix Media, which sold MySpace to News Corp, said MySpace would still grow strongly but not as fast as Facebook.
