MySpace Dumps Workers and Sells

 

NL-MySpace laid off close to half of it’s workers (500) in January. According to numerous online reports MySpace has sold to Specific Media for 35 million dollars. Looks like more employees will be dumped before the shift in ownership happens. I don’t use mySpace at all anymore (though I might still have an account there) and I don’t have a Facebook either. Twitter is the way to go as far as I’m concerned.

Outgoing CEO Mike Jones sent this note out-

Myspacers,

Today, we are announcing that Myspace will be acquired by Specific Media, one of the world’s leading online media and advertising platforms. Over the next few days you will be hearing from the team at Specific, including their CEO, Tim Vanderhook, regarding their exciting plans for Myspace and how it fits in with the overall vision of their company.

In conjunction with the deal, we are conducting a series of restructuring initiatives, including a significant reduction in our workforce. I will assist Specific with the transition over the next two months before departing my role as Myspace CEO.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for the incredible experience it has been to lead this company and to work closely with all of you over the past several years. While I regret we won’t be working together at Myspace any longer, I am very proud of the work we have done here and believe we have performed with excellence – even under extremely difficult circumstances.

My time here at Myspace represents the most engaging and challenging time of my professional career. I have found our team to be comprised of the best people I have come across in our industry.

You can read the press release below. Once again, thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

Thanks,

-M

    I’ve always hated “myspace”. They deleted me 8x. The first time was simply because of conspiracy links. I had no pornographic photos whatsoever at the time (that wasn’t until later spaces where I no longer gave a shit) and the first time lost a shit load of original writings. However, at least, when they weren’t deleting me without reason or warning, I was able to post long blogs, writings, etc. I can’t do that with facebook (unless it’s a group) nor tweeter. It’s almost like there’s a “conspiracy” to keep humanity stupid and superficial by keeping all of our correspondence reduced to one-liners.

    Are all my comments now on moderation mode, Cindi??
