According to MySpace President Michael Jones the News Corp.-owned site will no longer seek to compete with Facebook, but rather complement it. “Our focus is social entertainment,” he said. “Niche players have long staying power.”
By complementing Facebook, Jones must mean adopting its features. Let’s have a look…
That’s right, the status box mirrors Facebook’s and the share function to its right allows a MySpace member to also post updates to Twitter and Facebook. Yea for social integration!
Also note the stream of activity and Recommendations from MySpace friends, just like Facebook. But for social entertainment.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
