The Steady Decline Of MySpace


BEVERLY HILLS (Hypebot) –
MySpace's sloppy layouts and big brother corporate ownership has made it an easy target. But it’s hard to deny that for the last few years MySpace has been one of the most useful sites for garnering new fans and general band to fan interaction.

But things are changing. Slowly but steadily page views and unique visitors to MySpace are dropping even as the numbers at Facebook, YouTube and elsewhere continue to grow. The August auto-tune shut-off may have contributed to the decline in MySpace stats, but the reasons behind the decline go much deeper.

Others on the web are evolving and messy old MySpace is struggling to catch up with the comparison to Facebook the most dramatic. But even without comparisons, MySpace traffic fell 6.73% last month according to Compete and a total of 22% over the last three months according to Alexa measurements.
