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??

Newscorp Says ByeSpace!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness BlitzFacebook

myspace for sale

So long, and thanks for all the camera phone self portraits!

Earlier today, News Corp COO Chase Carey announced that he felt "now is the right time" to place MySpace "under a new owner."

More from Carey:

“The new MySpace has been very well received by the market and we have some very encouraging metrics, but the plan to allow MySpace to reach its full potential may be best achieved under a new owner.”

Letting 'em down easy, huh News Corp? How thoughtful of you. LOLz.

Rumors of News Corp's plans to sell MySpace had been going on for a while now, so this doesn't come as any major shocker.

Should be inneresting to see who snatches up MySpace. Will it be Google? Facebook? Will Friendster buy it and plan their reemergence as a social networking super power?

Hopefully it finds a good home!

MySpace may not be the #1 place to connect with friends anymore, but it's still a damn good place to listen to streaming music!

Twitter’s Revenue To Triple In 2011

Filed under: TwitterFacebook

Twitter’s Revenue To Triple In 2011

Remember when MySpace was a big deal??

Us either.

Twitter and Facebook are continuing to take over the world, and their revenue streams are skyrocketing.

Facebook is expecting to post more than $4 billion this year and Twitter’s revenue will likely triple to $150 million.

MySpace revenue is projected to fall by more than $100 million. Twitter could even surpass MySpace’s total revenue in 2012.

If you’re a MySpace fan, it might be time to start saying your goodbyes!

Filed under: Yummy Yummy ScrewSilly!Tom Hardy

And we have no intention of arguing. By all means - TAKE IT ALL OFF!

The remains of Tom Hardy's abandoned MySpace page have been unearthed and there are a plethora of goodies to share. Like so many others who used to frequent the social network, Tom shared some of his most intimate details with his followers, including who his heros are (Attila the Hun and Jamie the Naked Chef), a list of his attributes ("I'm grateful, arrogant self centred, tenacious, versatile, honest, honourable, loyal, loving, gentle, consistent, reliable, focussed, prideful, passionate and nuts.") and of course, all these gorgeous pictures.

Each shot gets even better than the last! Ha!

Take some time out to ogle the goodies and then CLICK HERE to see more of his profile.

You won't want to pass this chance up. There are some real gems hidden in those pages! (Plus MySpace could use the clicks!)

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness Blitz

myspace-layoffs__opt.jpg

Does this mark the end of MySpace? It doesn't support the contrary.

Execs at MySpace made the official announcement today that they are laying of 47% of their workforce for the social networking site. CEO Mike Jones noted that the percentage would find approximately 500 employees across all of their global divisions out of work. Though this is a massive loss of their workforce, Mike tried to put a positive spin on the change and hinted that the changes to come could save the company. He explained:
