Few weeks ago I was reading that MySpace was claiming more than 109 millions users.
My thoughts at that time was:
That's a lot of users. How many of them are
spammers, scammers and viral marketers
virtual accounts created by mySpace to sexify their market value
one off account created by individuals that wanted to see what is it about
created out of boredom and where holders main activity is silent browsing of strangers profile
duplicate accounts of forgetful legit users
And this morning I found that on Digg:
MySpace Not So Social Anymore: "MySpace is no longer a social site, corporate spam-peddlers have taken over. Fake celebrity profiles, corporations posing as 13 yr-old girls to sell products, and a growing flood of ads is too much even for undemanding, noobish MySpace users. If something isn't done, it's only a matter of time before MySpace goes the way of AOL."
