Is MySpace dying?
There's an interesting assessment in the Washington Post, which argues that MySpace may be yesterday's place to meet and therefore a business in trouble.
Now, I've argued before that MySpace was "dead in the water" but for different reasons. I've only ever viewed it as part of an ecology of promotional devices that musos can/should use to further their interests. I have three MySpace sites, one for me, personally, one for Bun' Ber E and one for The Genre Benders. I've got to say though, that apart from MySpace being the single largest referrer of traffic to this site, I've not experienced a lot of joy with it. Too much spam, too many un-friends and not enough genuine activity is how I'd describe it.
Nonetheless, it's a big animal to kill and its death will take some time, if it goes ahead. Something to watch for in my spare moments ...Posted by Hughie at December 8, 2006 1:11 PM
