MySpace Japan Office To Close In February [Social Networks]

It’s not a big surprise: MySpace Japan will close its office early next year, according to Japanese news site IT Media. According to the report, MySpace in the US will manage the Japanese version starting February 1, 2012.

MySpace Japan was established as early as November 2006, but the SoftBank-News Corp. joint venture never took off (MySpace Japan has its office in SoftBank’s HQ in Tokyo).

In Japan, MySpace counted a total of 1.09 million users in August this year, a far cry from Facebook‘s over 6 million or Mixi‘s 25 million registered users.
