I’ve been using MySpace.com for over 8 years on a steady basis… http://www.myspace.com/ralphpaglia Most of the content I post or syndicate from ADM, dealerELITE and other automotive networks gets posted to my MySpace profile page (including the above article from Tim Martell). This is a network that although toppled from its heyday, still has over 200 million active users. When Specific Media bought MySpace, I was engaged in daily business activity with Specific Media and was asked to assist in their redevelopment of the music application for MySpace, which I did… By no means would I recommend ignoring MySpace as one of the social networks included in a car dealership’s social media marketing strategy. A few observations, MySpace works exceptionally well for uploading and sharing videos… Not that it will replace YouTube, but MySpace videos seem to show up prominently in Google search results (SERP). Also, MySpace has user friendly content syndication and positing applications and API’s so apps like “Add This” work exceptionally well, pulling over images and the article’s first paragraph. Also, if you are into music, MySpace has more songs available than iTunes, Rhapsody and Spotify!
