MySpace

Contributor(s): Alexander B. Howard

MySpace.com is a popular social networking Web site.

Originally founded as a venue for aspiring musicians and bands to share music and concert dates, MySpace has grown into a complex site where users can create profiles, including photographs, blog s, music or movie preferences. Other features of the site include chat room s, forums, classified ads, newsgroup s and a venue for sharing videos or music.

Each user can choose to invite friends to create profiles or link to existing ones, creating a social network that can be exponentially expanded as users with similar tastes, interests or shared friends are discovered and added.

Extremely popular with teenagers and young adults, MySpace.com has seen explosive growth in recent years, with a current base of over 59 million users, reflecting both broader cultural trends offline and a unique culture online. Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp purchased the site in 2005 for $580 million dollars.
