Ever since Microsoft bought into Facebook, all anyone’s been talking about has been Facebook, Facebook, Facebook. Myspace has been the “Jan” of the social networking family, but I think Jan’s braces may be coming off.
According to USA Today:
“Celebrities have a new home on one of the Internet’s most popular social networking sites.
MySpace launches its Celebrity Channel today (celebrity .myspace.com), a move that will allow the site’s 110 million users virtual one-stop access to the personal pages and blogs of more than 300 actors, musicians, athletes and other high-profile types.”
My whole argument with social networking revolves around the fact that people only have so much time. So yes, we all love social networking, but we can’t be spread around 27 sites trying to hang out with everyone. That’s why I believe, that after we are swimming in an ocean of social networking sites, most will drop to the side while we all migrate to one or two sites.
Having all these celebrity blogs could definitely start fingers typing myspace.com again. It will be interesting to see how many celebrities take the bait.
