article imageIs My Space Now Their Space?

By timmack     Mar 20, 2007 in Lifestyle
Myspace is a brilliant concept. Or rather, should I say, it was a brilliant concept.
Yes, Myspace gave its users freedom, and it gave its users more freedom than any other social network on the net. And, of course, that's the reason that Myspace became the most popular social networking site in the history of the internet.
But now some Myspace users are crying foul, and wondering if Myspace, is really now their space. There are many musical groups that have blogs on Myspace that promote their music and upcoming concerts. But now Myspace is hinting that they should enter into a partnership with Myspace, or there promotional links will be deleted.
But to some formerly enthusiastic MySpace users, the new restrictions hamper their abilities to design their pages and promote new projects.
“The reason why I am so bummed out about MySpace now is because recently they have been cutting down our freedom and taking away our rights slowly,” wrote Tila Tequila, a singer who is one of MySpace’s most popular and visible users, in a blog posting over the weekend. “MySpace will now only allow you to use ‘MySpace’ things.”
Ms. Tequila, born Tila Nguyen, has attracted attention by linking to more than 1.7 million friends on her MySpace page. To promote her first album, she recently added to her MySpace page a new music player and music store, called the Hoooka, created by Indie911, a Los Angeles-based start-up company.
