My.com

When it comes to online names in Russia, you don’t get much bigger than Mail.ru. Now the company is looking to expand its global presence with My.com

Given that it already owns 90% of Russia’s internet, it’s pretty much a matter of necessity that the internet giant continue adding to its international properties, if it’s to keep growing as a company.

It’s unclear precisely what My.com is. At the moment there’s only a holding page with the option to sign up using your email address and the tagline “Something new. Something interesting. Something yours.” There’s no indication as to whether there will also be something borrowed and something blue.

In Russia, Mail.ru offers social networking, blogging gaming, and video-sharing services, among others.

Mail.ru’s investment arm has a five percent stake in Facebook. And as The Next Web points out, its other international interests include stakes in prominent companies such as Groupon and Zynga.

Its own overseas properties include Allods Online, Perfect World and Lord of the Rings Online. Additionally, it’s working on localising a number of its Russian services for international markets.
