It's Official -- Owen Van Natta On Board to Give MySpace a Face(book)-Lift

All those rumors were correct after all -- not surprisingly, News Corp. officially has named former Facebook chief revenue officer, Owen Van Natta, to be MySpace's new CEO (after purging MySpace's founders and original executive team, Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson).  Van Natta hopes to reinvigorate the former darling of the Internet world -- giving it a long overdue Face-lift.  Rupert Murdoch hopes that some of the Facebook magic can be sprinkled onto the MySpace brand to cause others to take notice once again.
