A New Direction for Myspace – Too Little, Too Late?

Watching the watchers .. London

On MySpace’s New Strategy

This is an old article that I put on the back burner some time ago, but I’ve thought about the issue once again.  As far as I’m concerned, there is no substitute or even a serious competitor to Facebook.

In a way, it is frustrating.  It would be nice to have a social network that actually respected privacy rights and encouraged creativity instead of encouraging what I like to call “group think.”

Ultimately, I believe that it remains to be seen whether Facebook encourages creativity, herd thinking, and/or both.  In many ways it seems to be a moot point.  I don’t see MySpace ever reclaiming its former glory.  Without a serious competitor, Facebook can continue to do as it pleases.  It doesn’t mean that we have to buy.
