My Space (as long as I don't have to pay for anything)

in Uncategorized

Now that we’re letting out our inner music geeks, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to MySpace.

Interesting note from a band mailing list
about getting positioning on MySpace’s homepage.

One of the band members posted the numbers:

  • number of times their music was played: around 20,000
  • number of MySpace friend requests: 1200
  • number of mailing list signups: over 100
  • number of CDs sold: ZERO

There are a lot of theories on this one. Mine is that no one enters through the MySpace homepage once they’ve got their own profile.
