Myspace now popular again, under new ownership

February 15, 2012

Justin Timberlake is one of the investors who helped buy Myspace from Rupert Murdoch in 2011.

Myspace adds 1m new users in 30 days | Technology | guardian.co.uk.

……. taking it to 25 million registered users and representing a dramatic turnaround for the social network that Rupert Murdoch abandoned almost eight months ago.

The website claimed that about 40,000 people a day had signed up to Myspace since it introduced new ties with rival social networks, Twitter and Facebook.

Vanderhook claimed that Myspace now offered the biggest free music collection online, ahead of popular streaming services such as Spotify and Deezer.

Myspace has a music catalogue of more than 42m songs, according to Vanderhook. Spotify has a library of about 15m songs in the US.

    I’m surprised Timberlake invested in Myspace. I keep thinking of the movie “The Social Network” when I see this post for some odd reason.
