Is Myspace dead?

Well, according to Jason Hirschhon (president of Myspace) it's far from it. Myspace is set for a face lift/relaunch and a huge one at that, once the Kings of social networking Myspace has since been dethroned by the likes of Facebook and Twitter.

Personally, I don't think the relaunch or "re-branding" of Myspace will work it has had its day. At Myspace's peak it was huge and in a weird way it is responsible for a lot of current musicians careers and even the existence of TURN OFF THE RADIO.

People used Myspace to network, promote themselves, or even to meet a prospective partner believe it or not. But fundamentally Myspace was and is still used by musicians giving them the opportunity to allow people to listen to their music or even contact them.

However, since the emergence of Facebook and more recently Twitter the tide turned user migrated and Myspace fell by the waste side and that is where it will stay for the foreseeable future no matter what.

Take note Jason Hirschhon and Rupert Murdoch" You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink"

If it's any consolation I still use Myspace and can be found here.
