I have been writing that MySpace would be an ideal acquirer for Net2Phone's underpriced, iconic softphone's assets.

Now it appears that the hugely popular social networking site- owned by News Corp.- has had other ideas.

MySpace has partnered with theglobe.com to release tglophone for MySpace users.

Any Myspace user who downloads the tglo software receives a softphone allowing voice calls, conference calling up to 6 people, and Voicemail. The software turns every member of Myspace into a callable link.  The user then clicks on the friend to place the call.  If the user is offline or not answering, a Voicemail message is recorded and sent directly to the MySpace user's InBox. 

If the MySpace user provides a mobile number tglo forwards the Voicemail message to their cell phone as an MMS message.

This will be a big hit. The younger demographic that hangs out on MySpace loves to talk, is technology-savvy and likes to try cool new things.

The way that cool tech adoption works with teens, I sense this coolness has the potential to be absolutely viral for VoIP.
