MySpace is often touted as the savior of the music industry. But the viewpoint of an amusing and insightful study by the Moneydick blog concludes that MySpace demonstrates a "failure of humanity".
"I’m not debating whether Myspace offers a good system or service, I’m only lamenting the place it has become thanks to its user base. There are good and bad uses for social networking websites. Most are useless and waste more time without contributing to the social good. Myspace is the worst."
"With 1.4 million bands hosted for free, MySpace has by nature of its massive youth saturation made itself a venerable resource for musicians. A heaping mound of steaming dung becomes a whole different animal if it also links people with artists in a democratic medium. Thankfully, many bands have a user-oriented sense of style when designing their page that does not afflict their fans with a rare form of mental stigmata due to illegible flashing abortions."
