Redstone told interviewer Charlie Rose that losing My Space had been "humiliating", adding, "My Space was sitting there for the taking for 0 million" (Myspace was sold in 2012 by News Corp for million.) On November 1, 2007, Myspace and Bebo joined the Google-led Open Social alliance, which already included Friendster, Hi5, Linked In, Plaxo, Ning and Six Apart.Open Social was to promote a common set of standards for software developers to write programs for social networks. Google had been unsuccessful in building its own social networking site Orkut in the U. market and was using the alliance to present a counterweight to Facebook.At its peak, when News Corp attempted to merge it with Yahoo! Since then, Myspace has seen a continuing loss of membership.
Despite over ten times the number of developers, Friendster, which was developed in Java Server Pages (jsp), could not keep up with the speed of development of Myspace and cfm.
For example, users could customize the background, look, and feel of pages on My Space.
Another problem that users face when they register on the dating service website is they can not begin to use immediately if the site has a policy to approve profiles before allowing a user to use the account.
Myspace (stylized as myspace) is an American social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music, and videos.
Myspace was the largest social networking site in the world from 2005 to 2008. In August 2003, several e Universe employees with Friendster accounts saw potential in its social networking features.
The group decided to mimic the more popular features of the website.The My domain was originally owned by Your Z.com, Inc., intended until 2002 for use as an online data storage and sharing site.By late 2003, it was transitioned from a file storage service to a social networking site.Boyd compared the shift of white, middle-class kids from the "seedy" Myspace to the "supposedly safer haven" of Facebook, to the "white flight" from American cities; the perception of Myspace eventually drove advertisers away as well.That resulted in De Wolfe and Anderson gradually losing their status within Murdoch's inner circle of executives, plus De Wolfe's mentor Peter Chernin, the President and COO of News Corp.However, the features were often buggy and slow as there was insufficient testing, measuring, and iterating.
