Who would've thought it. It is going broke.

My guess is Facebook helped them out----all the way out. :D

All good things come to an end, I suppose. :roll:

A tear will be shed for all the one night stands that were had by the help of Tom.

Facebook is more user friendly. I kept getting errors many times on MySpace so I deleted my account a couple years ago.

i liked myspace before they forced a design change on everyone. they should have raised the song limit and made it able to sell on myspace without the design change.

Once you go Facebook you never go back........... :D

MySpace had its heyday for a few years, now I guess its going the way of Geocities, and the AOL homepages. Nothing on the 'net lasts forever it seems.

You have to setup your songs with a service called Snowcap (with a credit card) for people to download.
EDIT: A little while ago you did at least. Don't know about it now.

Yeah, truth is that MySpace was good in its early days... it's fucked up now, and we all know what did it...
And again, truth is MySpace doesnt match Facebook.

Chronicles of an announced end I think. Not big deal, FB totally owned MS and it was obvious they would eventually broke down

Good question. No idea.

It updates 3 days a week. I dunno if the webcomics are made by the staff or submitted by people.

Still, they'll always need programmers. :)

Myspace... is.... so..... slow......

That's the main reason most people switched to Facebook. I check my Myspace profile like, maybe once a month. It's good for bands and stuff but other than that, they've been outclassed by FB.

Yes it was still good a few months back, but the "new Myspace" just messed everything up. I still use it, to keep in touch with some friends there, but I don't spend as much time there as I used to, because it's so slow now.

I agree, if myspace just switched back to the way they used to be then they would still rule the netverse.

Hey, do you really like the steelers that much? I live a few hours away from Pittsburgh. I'm in the middle of the state while Pittsburgh is all the way west towards Ohio...

Even with that, Facebook was gaining a lot of territory and it was predictible this would end like this. I'm not surprised if other social network's pages eventually dissapear

Myspace was once a great site, but the new appearance ruined it. I think, that it's quite sad. :( On its best days Myspace looked far better, than Facebook.

Oh yea, I've been a Steelers fan for many years. The NFL is quite popular here in Mexico. I'm hoping they'll have another game here at some point. I had the chance to see the Steelers-Colts Amercan Bowl in Mexico City in 2000. It was a lot of fun. It was really cool seeing Bill Cowher on the sidelines :)

I mean if something is not broke don't fix it, and what they did was the exact opposite, they put a band aid on a non existent wound.

This might sound strange, but maybe Facebook will buy it. Then Facebook might get Myspace's best features.
