Realtors on MySpace take note- the Titanic is sinking

MySpace has hit the iceberg and is going down

Rumors were that a financial injection and reorganization had MySpace on an upswing but traffic is showing otherwise as comScore figures show a loss of over 10,000,000 unique visitors between January and February and more than 50,000,000 users over the last year. The drop in traffic seems to be accellerating.

MySpace has been seen in more recent years as a de facto social network focused on music but YouTube, Facebook, Pandora and the like have eaten away at its marketshare.

MySpace CEO Mike Jones told BBC that MySpace is no longer a social network, rather an “entertainment destination.”

Realtors on MySpace

There are still a handful of agents on MySpace and anyone who is garnering leads or simply doing so as a hobby are fine, but anyone thinking of jumping aboard should note that MySpace is the Titanic and we’re in the scene of the movie where she tearfully says “I’ll never let go, Jack, I’ll never let go.” We all know what happened next.

    I thought MySpace died 2 years ago!

    Like Jonathan I am totally shocked that anyone was still even using MySpace? It’s been a punchline for years now.

      I agree, but some still use it regularly. Some even say they’ve made business contacts there. I’m thinking maybe an agent who specializes in getting housing for the entertainment industry would do well?

    Unless you’re an upstart rock band, MySpace holds very little value.
