article imageTom Anderson, co-found of MySpace, calls MySpace a cesspool

By Owen Weldon     Jan 7, 2012 in Business
Tom Anderson, the co-founder of MySpace, recently found himself in a censorship debate, where he criticized the social networking website.
Anderson described MySpace as a cesspool that nobody wants to visit. Anderson also voiced his concerns about Google+, saying that the relatively new social networking site could become the same.
The censorship debate started after MG Siegler, a columnist at TechCrunch, criticized Google because his Google+ profile photo was removed without any warning, according to Digital Spy. The profile pic that he had up was a photo of himself, with his middle finger raised. Google+ considered the photo offensive.
According to MSNBC, Anderson addressed Siegler and said that he respectfully thinks that the users of Google+ do not need to see a photo of him flipping them off. Anderson went onto say that they also do not need to see photos of users who display something else that is considered to be offensive. Anderson said that when a social networking website starts letting stuff like that slide, then it turns into a cesspool, similar to MySpace.
According to WebProNews, Anderson also said (in regards to the photo) that all Google+ has done was take action on its plan, and this is remove offensive photos. He said that was Twitter, Facebook and MySpace’s plan before and Google+ is just ahead of the game and are doing it much better.
Google+ has been growing very fast, according to multiple reports. Google also said that when they announce user growth in upcoming announcements, people will end up being left in shock.
