MySpace shrinks

Last time I wrote about MySpace, someone sounding very much like a MySpace employee astroturfed the comments. That's less likely to happen today, as the twilighting of MySpace sees it half the global staff is being dumped and that suggests there's going to be less time for people to complain about the clock ticking down on the site.

Most of the losses are caused by advertising sales being shuffled off to .Fox in the States; it's not exactly a ringing endorsement of a site with a glorious future.

Tut tut Simon! There you go following the herd narrative on MySpace instead of visiting the site yourself!

I think you have some more astroturf to rip up here, Simon.

Why have you changed your tune since the last comment you made about a Myspace post, Olive?

The only future Myspace has, as an advertising space for new music, isn't one that will ever make its owner any money. So it is basically a heartbeat away from closure.
