MySpace may hook up with MSN, Google or Yahoo!

MySpace may be shopping for a search partner to monetize its social networking site.

MSN has a good chance of winning this bidding war — the Microsoft and MySpace seem pretty tight — but it’s a weak consolation prize after losing AOL to Google and eBay to Yahoo!

The news was dropped at an investor conference by Peter Chernin, chief operating officer of News Corp., the giant media company that bought MySpace last year for $580 million.
