Time will only tell if he will succeed!

Let's all be honest - no one uses their MySpace anymore. It's all about the Facebook and the Twitter. It's become updated, passe. They've laid off almost all of their staff and the last we heard, the head honchos were just about ready to fold.

But there might just might be a way to save MySpace … and his name is Justin Timberlake!

It was announced via the company that Justin is taking a stake in MySpace and is eager to help in its new strategy and creative direction to a more music based website. On his stake about the ownership, he explains:

MySpace Is About To Be NoSpace, Layoffs Coming THIS Week!

Filed under: Business Blitz

MySpace For Sale

Yep, you read correctly. MySpace IS still around.

The former internet phenom is going on sale for $30 million, which pales in comparison to the whopping $580 mil it took to start it.

Those vying for the company include Specific Media, Golden Gate Capital, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, and the site's co-founders - Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson.

With the sale will also come a 50 percent layoff rate leaving the cyber giant with only 200 employees.

Looks like it's withering away, but for old time's sake, we hope Tom gets it!

Facebook And Twitter BANNED From French TV/Radio!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersPolitikFrancophiliaTwitterFacebook

facebook and twitter banned from tv and radio in france

Looks like France wants to give less popular social networking sites a chance!

The French government has officially banned everybody from using the words "Facebook" and "Twitter" on television AND radio UNLESS the companies themselves are the focus of a particular story.

Apparently, France's gov made this decision because they felt that Facebook/Twitter mentions on TV/radio are unfair to other social networking sites that can't afford such exposure.

You hear that, Bebo! France has got your back! LOLz.

We understand what France is trying to do here, but we also don't think that keeping Facebook or Twitter off of TV/radio is going to convince people that they should give Myspace another try.

What do U think about the French government's decision to ban Facebook/Twitter from TV/radio?

R.I.P. Friendster! Social Network's Accounts Being Deleted By May 31

Filed under: Tech TalkSad Sad

Friendster deleting user accounts

We're gathered here today to say goodbye to a very dear friend that never really had a chance.

Friendster began with earnest hopes of becoming a place where friends could come to connect, share photos, and maybe even a few laughs while commenting on each others profiles.

However, like so many other social networking websites, it spent most of its life in the shadows of giants like Myspace, Facebook, and of course, LinkedIn.

Although never reaching the social networking peaks that its successors have, Friendster will always be what they can never be again. A pioneer.

The website claimed the name of "social networking website of choice" for many in 2003, but unfortunately, couldn't keep users from signing off and signing on to competing networks as time marched on.

While its life on the internet was tragically cut short, we'll always remember Friendster as the little website the could have, maybe would have, and probably should have, but never quite did take off.

As the website deletes all users profiles and accounts by May 31st to prepare for its next life as "the social gaming destination of choice", we ask that everyone take a moment of silence to remember the website that may have started it all.

R.I.P. Friendster! You will be missed.

Facebook And Google Want Some Twitter Sprinkles On Their Mega-Website Sundaes

Filed under: TwitterFacebook

Watch Me Tweet This Sundae

To the tune of up to $10 BILLION dollars.

Note to ourselves: Invent simple internet websites. Pick up dry cleaning.

LOLz!

It's being reported that both Google and Facebook execs are in early talks to purchase that crazy little website we call Twitter. (Where's MySpace? Get in the game!)

While it's still pretty early to expect an actual purchase, it IS still innersting to hear that Twitter, while being valued at that staggering number, only raked in $45 Million in revenue last year:

"A valuation for Twitter of between $8 billion and $10 billion would be "remarkable" given that Twitter had revenue of $45 million last year and is only estimated to have about $100 million in sales for 2011."

Wow.

Good for the guys over Twitter, that's for sure!

Thoughts??
