MySpace names Flanigan as UK marketer

Myspace has recruited former AOL and Telegraph Group marketer Barry Flanigan (pictured) has as its new marketing director UK.

Myspace confirmed that Flanigan is now director of marketing and audience development at the social networking site.

He left Telegraph Group in October last year after a restructure at the publisher. He replaced Katie Vanneck, now at News International, in the role but only held the position for 10 months.

MySpace, owned by News Corp and now part of the Fox Interactive division, recently appointed BBC head of marketing for BBC2, BBC 4 and factual programming as international marketing director.

News International is investigating working with News Corp sites such as Sky and MySpace, to create a behavioural targeting network across its properties.
