Why should you use MySpace?

TechSoup has an article on How to Use MySpace to Raise Awareness:

Designed to help like-minded individuals and organizations connect and share information, social networks are showing promise as low-cost, high-impact marketing channels because they are both highly visited and highly targeted. In particular, many nonprofits are starting to set up profiles on social-networking sites like MySpace to keep “friends” up to date on the latest activities. These friends then invite more friends to join the group and so on, ultimately allowing the nonprofit to reach people well beyond its original circle.

I have to admit – I have yet to sign up and try MySpace – mostly because I don’t have time to maintain another site – but I guess I should give it a whirl so I can learn more about what’s involved in setting up a page.

  1. I have a “bare-bones” site on myspace, mostly to stay connected with a few friends who use it as their email. Honestly, I find it more irritating than anything. the interface is clunky, it’s a pain getting messages, your account gets inundated with spam and generally I was unimpressed. That said, it’s where out students are, so…*shrug*. For social networking sites in general, I prefer Facebook, and I’ve recently joined LinkedIn, which I’m really impressed with.
