Feb 15 - Is Myspace Back on the Rise?

Are things looking up for MySpace? First Justin Timberlake invests, and then it announces a MySpace TV partnership with Panasonic. Now it's claiming 1 million new users in the last 30 days, which adds up to 40,000 new sign-ups daily. The former social network giant come music streaming site announced yesterday that because of the launch of the MySpace Music Player, people are signing up at break-neck speed. "The numbers tell an amazing story of strong momentum and dramatic change for MySpace," MySpace CEO Tim Vanderhook said in a statement, "and the 1 million-plus new user accounts we've seen in the last 30 days validates our approach." Looking strictly at the numbers, MySpace is now claiming more music than the latest music streaming darling Spotify. With the new music player, MySpace says that it now features the largest online catalog of free music in the world with 42 million songs. As of July 2011, Spotify's catalog had around 15 million songs and as of February 2011 Pandora had 800,000. The MySpace Music Player reportedly has unlimited and on-demand listening, radio modes, a recommendation engine, and Facebook integration. However, along with this music player, MySpace might also have Facebook to credit for bringing in new users. According to The Guardian, MySpace's Facebook app, which lets users join directly via Facebook, went from 900,000 monthly active users in mid-January to 1.6 million users as of today. MySpace was bought out in June for $35 million by digital media firm Specific Media, which is a fraction of the $580 million that Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. paid for it in 2005. These new owners are said to be focusing more on music rather than purely social networking. "MySpace is building meaningful social entertainment experience around content, where consumers can share and discover the music they love," Vanderhook said. "Consumers are getting excited about MySpace again--a testament to a great music product."

The worst thing about MySpace is it changed. I hope a whole division of MySpace was fired after the decision to remove the "search music artists by location" feature. How the fu*k u gonna pioneer something and then turn around and take it out of existence?
they changed way too much... added too much sh*t to try to compete with fb! like news feeds and such. should of kept it original with their bulletins and left the news feeds alone. you go on myspace now and i bet you'll be like wtf is all this sh*t...

Just checked it out. The music player is ok. They need to add some stuff to it, but if you're tryna stream music and u know what you're lookin for ur good....and it DOES have more songs then Spotify, i can tell as a searched for a few artists i kno Spotify doesn't have and myspace has it.

its ranked 105 in the US on alexa.
and it has a small percentage rise the past month.
So its some type of rise.. its hard to say if the users will be actively social or just be there for music though. It's seems like it will always be there as far as a music/media site.

If they brought it back to what it was like 3 years ago
but made it more like facebook and easier to use and upload photos and themes
made the privacy better and had a decent add campaign they could get back to being the number 2 and take over google +

Although the newness of Facebook sucks it still manages to be relevant. MySpace kind of just sat back and let their popularity speak for it's self. There will be something in the next year or two that will unseat Facebook but I think Mark is well ahead of the game and will conform to the times and keep Facebook relevant. I hear a few folks jumping on the whole myearbook bandwagon now tho.
