Your Space, Our Space, MySpace

The MySpace revolution continues to roll. The SXSW MySpace page has topped over 550 friends, since launching a few months ago. A recent profile in Rolling Stone gets a MySpace perspective from rock bands like Weezer, All-American Rejects, and Dashboard Confessional. An excerpt:

“Launched in 2003 with just seven employees, MySpace has become the fourth-highest-trafficked Web site (after Yahoo!, eBay and MSN), with 35 million members, and in July, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. paid $580 million to acquire its parent company. On November 15th, MySpace Records, in partnership with Interscope, will release its first CD, a compilation featuring site faves Weezer, Dashboard Confessional and Fall Out Boy. The first band the label signed, rap-rockers Hollywood Undead, also appear on the disc. Their debut is expected in the spring.”
