      Not for a while

      MySpace was bought out of greed - at the thought of the income from ad content.

      Facebook has got the ads, is very well established and the owner doesn't need a big cash bost as he's well minted.

        well elmer, you don't seem to have much idea about facebook either.

        facebook will die on its arse (like the rest of the other web 2.0 shit) once the slack-jawed yoof who use it move on to the next shiny new thing. just like they did to myspace. and bebo. and orkut. and aol. and .... all the way back to compuserve in the days of dial-up. or the days of cb radio in the era before the internet.

        the best thing about the myspace death spiral is it will cost the dirty digger a lot of money.

    There is no saving MySpace under your control. It's a clear loser in the social media world. There is a model that could save your money loving ass. Call or email us at Videography Lab.

    BTW: Fox does have some good entertainment programming but your News is unfair and way out of balance.
