According to an article in the Guardian today:
"Reuters is planning to launch its own version of MySpace this year - though its community website will not be aimed at teenagers.
Instead, fund managers, traders and analysts are being targeted."
It is said that Reuters are keen to embrace the online potential of community websites.
The idea is to allow subscribers to "share research", and probably more importantly to Reuters, advertise directly to users.
