    A lot? Would you classify it as a valuable source of traffic?

    It is good for ORM to a certain extent; as to traffic I do not think so.

    Myspace has become more of a home for amateur musicians in the time that Justin Timberlake has co-owned it, so the high traffic actually isn't too surprising.

    Only musicians use Myspace. I don't know a single person in my personal life who still uses the site regularly.

    I thought he was more of a "music artist", or is he doing acting now, too?

    I thin myspace still good only to to promote bands of music or other art but not for internet marketing. Of course maybe if are focused you can get traffic due low competition there.

    It was a nice website back in 2006. I remember everyone's Myspace page was unique and it was interesting to see what everyone was interested in, unlike with Facebook where everyone has the same interests and personalities. These days, it's more of a music website and I personally don't visit it since they deleted my old profile.

    Can I ask a question plz - WHY did MySpace fall so much, if it's a household name - which it is - why can't some "bright sparks" put some life into it? Surely, there's a real business there?

    I think it is now the internet equivalent of a ghost town, few old timers on the porch, maybe someone playing the banjo and a regular stream of tourists wandering through seeing if there is anyone there and wondering what wrong :)

    Myspace failed miserably because it became a 'hackers playground', essentially. Tom sold it off to Fox, which did some weird stuff with it, though not ultimately changing it.

    With the customization of the pages, people found out that you could essentially 'execute' web code from them, and MySpace exploits were born. IMO this is what killed it. Right around the same time FB was catching steam, and just ultimately steamrolled it. As FB seemed to be the 'safer' alternative. :: chuckles ::

    MySpace was originally bought by Fox for around $445 million, and was later sold to JT and other investors for $30-$40 million. The only real reason I can see it even being worth that much now, is the DB of users.

    I think they did a good job with the new layout, but they don't seem to be making a move on FB, or Twitter. Maybe like others have stated, they're trying to keep it a musician related site. It seems like a mix between Spotify, and FB now. :: shrugs ::
