I was reading my archives when suddenly I stumbled upon this article about What People Aren’t Saying About Social Media and I began to read. There’s a portion of it where the author debunked to made a point regarding MySpace vs. Facebook.
MySpace versus Facebook: There is a lot of confusion about the MySpace versus Facebook issue. The general consensus is that MySpace has been trashed and isn’t worth the time. That isn’t entirely true. There are still people making money off MySpace. The key to remember is that MySpace is a younger crowd with a lower income and Facebook has a higher income and is older. The best thing you can do is study both - see what others in your industry are doing, see how you see yourself fitting in and most importantly, come up with a plan. So many people just jump in and set up a profile and then don’t know what to do next. Just being there doesn’t mean the money is going to pour in. You need to engage people, you need to come up with something that people will want to see, hear or read. (Jennifer Horowitz, SitePro News, June 20, 2008)
It made sense to me that MySpace is not that of a “boom” compared to Facebook. Facebook is there before MySpace and MySpace is still crawling in the cyberspace looking for better audience. If we don’t judge the book by its cover then the world would be a better place to live in.
