Reuters does a mySpace

A social networking service for fund managers, traders, and analysts. This is what Reuters is aiming to create. (You have to register to read the rest of the story from Guardian Unlimited).

Excerpt:

“You will see us, later in the year, launch a version of MySpace for the financial services community,” said the chief executive, Tom Glocer. “It won’t have the latest hot videos and the ‘why I am into Metallica and the Arctic Monkeys’ blogs. Instead we are going to give our financial services users the ability to post their research or if they are traders, their trading models.

“People don’t want to have 100 friend requests from teenage girls in Florida if they are trading the credit derivatives market, but they probably are interested in being able to share research.”
