You may not give MySpace a second thought these days but it was a major social network a long time ago. It has obviously not aged well since the advent of Facebook and other platforms but has kept chugging along. A recent server migration will cause problems for users who have still been holding on to their MySpace uploads from over a decade ago because the platform has lost a […]
These days Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are pretty much the default social media, and we expect that given how big these platforms are, it will be a while before we see them dethroned. However back in the day, MySpace was the king, or at least it was one of the more dominant platforms available at that time.
It has only been a few months since Time acquired Myspace.com and now it’s having to do damage control for a major hack that appears to have compromised passwords of hundreds of millions of people. Time Inc. has confirmed through a press release that earlier this week its technical teams were notified of attempts to sell Myspace usernames, passwords and email addresses registered before June 2013 online.
Here’s a question for you guy: how many of you still use MySpace? The social media platform was huge back in the day but safe to say that it isn’t what it used to be, but obviously there are probably many of us who still have accounts with the platform. If you’re the type that has used the same password for the past 10-15 years, then maybe this should be […]
Update – Facebook released a statement claiming that it was not a hack, but due to changes they made to their configuration system.In case you weren’t aware, earlier Facebook and some of Facebook’s other services such as Messenger and Instagram went offline for a very brief period of time, which has been estimated to have been about an hour. So what was the problem? Maintenance? A server error? Or could it […]
Just how often do you think that folks still log in to MySpace – regularly? Does it sound surprising that there are still people who log in to MySpace? In fact, the number of people who actually log in to MySpace has been touted to be approximately 50 million, at least according to Viant CEO Tim Vanderhook, who happens to own Specific Media, which in turn picked up MySpace for […]
The newly redesigned MySpace, which debuted in beta last year, is now being launched. The launch seems to be timed with the release of Justin Timberlake’s new single entitled “Suit & Tie” that features the famous rapper Jay-Z. A quick look at new.myspace.com shows the advertisement of the song plastered across the landing page. In it, there’s Justin Timberlake, co-owner of Myspace, wearing that classic suit and tie, as the […]
Last year we announced that MySpace would be revamped into a music-centric website, and it looks like its plan might be working. According the online social network, it reported that a million new users have signed up for an account since December. However, it didn’t mention anything about people leaving the website, so we’re not sure if a million new users translate into a net growth of a million users. But […]
MySpace just won’t seem to die. After being revived so many times, each one more unsuccessful than the last, it has been reported that MySpace is going to be resuscitated once again. Specific Media, the latest owner of MySpace, has announced that the social networking service will be relaunched later this year with a new focus on what made it successful in the first place: the music. A good idea, […]
MySpace and Facebook have slugged it out a few years back, with the latter emerging to be the 800 lbs gorilla, while MySpace licks its wounds. Well, MySpace hopes to boost its sagging revenue figures by agreeing to an ad deal with Google that will expire when 2010 is no more, and has to look for alternative sources of revenue after that. In doing so, MySpace is mulling with the […]
Microsoft has just launched its new phone service called Kin, along with two devices, named Kin 1 (Kin 1 photo gallery) and Kin 2 (Kin 2 photo gallery). The idea was to create a phone for heavy texters and those who love to stay in touch with friends and family through social networks. Microsoft has introduced a whole new user interface for its phones with design elements borrowed from Windows […]
