I read an article yesterday about Jonathan Miller, who is taking over myspace as the CEO and how he does not have an account. There is much more to being a CEO than simply having an account... but one would hope the new candidate, let alone new hire, would at least be familiar with the operations to understand what the typical member experiences.
In the interim, myspace has noticeable been declining in traffic lately, despite many of the long overdue additions and changes to how the overall operations function. The Place For Friends has become the Place for ROBOTS and other methods of fishing people to simply enter competitions and dating sites and buy this or that... even myspace, itself, does this more often than ever. Even though myspace was always involved in a bigger company (E.UNIVERSE), they gave the picture that, TOM ANDERSON, a partner with Chris DeWolfe, had a home grown / grass roots website.... he was actually quite approachable in the beginning and there were many myspace local parties here in Los Angeles to drum up business back in 2002.
Mark Zuckerburg, who is 24 years of age, on the other hand, created a small site for his fellow Harvard people, (FACEBOOK) and then other Ivy League students and then it somehow bounced to Europe and highschoool students and in the last few years, has been growing faster than a ten clowns on a single trike under a black light!
In less than a year from the point where Face caught up to the number of memberships as myspace, it has now, more than doubled!!!
Last month there were 124 million monthly unique visitors last month, a dceline for them and Facebook had 276 million uniques, an increase of over 16%. link to the guardian
What does all of this mean?
It means my next session starts at 4pm which is only moments from now.
What are your thoughts on any of this?
