    Default MySpace may charge for music!!!

    MySpace is rumored to soon charge to play music on profiles. It would no longer be free according to Businessweek magazine. Here is the link. I hope this is a false rumor. http://www.businessweek.com/technolo...116_706878.htm

    I love being able to have a playlist of up to 10 songs for free on my page and I hope that does not change. The Businessweek article eludes to the fact that residuals MySpace pays to the bands is about $20 million a month.

    I like that the article identifies MySpace as an antiquated piece of shit.

    Well, for starters, these quotes:

    MySpace is so far behind in terms of user interface and experience that it's hard to imagine the company launching a compelling paid product.

    MySpace, however, isn't seen as a premium provider of anything—and MySpace Music is viewed as a place where clutter and advertising are tolerated in order to get something for free.

    nd for a company that has already admitted it has long stopped innovating, MySpace would have to overtake more nimble competitors to draw users to a paid music service while overcoming the perception that it's a messy-but-free one.

    I just think MySpace is still doing well on the innovation front. They made some deal with Twitter. I wonder if Google will renew its deal with MySpace when it expires next year.

    Now that I think about it, sicne MySpace is emphasizing itself as an entertainment site rather than the top site for friends, maybe it will keep the music free. It did quietly drop the "Place for friends" tag some months back.

    I hope they start charging each user per how many friends they have. Poor Ken wouldn't know what to do with himself.

    There is no innovation going on at MySpace. It's just a spam infested mess.

    What SPECIFIC innovations could be done to improve or "save" MySpace? That book "Stealing MySpace" by Julia Angwin has a lot of intersting behind the scene stories of how MySpace emerged and evolved over time.

    Nothing can be done, except for the servers being turned off.

    Instead of quitting, people should try innovating. It is never too late to improve. Even Jimmy Carter improved his reputation AFTER he was president. Remember folks, at one time, MySpace was ahead of its time and made Friendster practically vanish.

    The entire site would have to be redesigned. Either way, the best they could do at the moment would be to try to bite Facebook's model even more than they already have been forced to in the past couple years.

    MySpace should not try to steal ideas from Facebook. It should try to be original and have its own unique niche.

    This article compares MySpace to "white flight" and being a ghetto. I do not agree, many non-racial minorities are still on MySpace. It is going strong and has tens of millions of people logging on there every day and its comscore rating is still decent.

    Working in online advertising and dealing with both Facebook and Myspace, i can say from a revenue/quality perspective myspace is seriously fucked. not only does their traffic continue to wither, but they inventory is SHIT.

    bitch all you want about online advertising, but quality traffic = more revenue = better site.

    Keep the social networking thing going, but make it faster and find a way to integrate the entertainment industry more with the site, not just bands. Fox/Rupert Murdock owns MySpace so they may have some tricks oup their sleeve. Maybe MySpace should rehire Chris DeWolfe, its founder. The ads should be placed in a less annoying manner.

    Can you explain what you mean by their "inventory"?

    inventory = ad inventory

    when it performs better (clicks and conversions (people interacting)), we pay more thus they get more revenue in the door.

    The reason you see bad ads on myspace is because the traffic is bad. quality ads = quality site.
