Imeem To Be Integrated Within MySpace Music
(UPDATED) Beginning today, imeem will quickly cease to exist; with only select remnants finding a new home within MySpace Music. As part of an announcement making it's acquisition of imeem public, MySpace let users know that imeem playlists will be temporarily disabled and directed to MySpace Music.
Unlike after its iLike acquisition, which saw its executives named to key positions at MySpace, just four members of imeem's team have been hired as consultants to help manage the transition: CEO Dalton Caldwell, CTO Brian Berg, COO Ali Aydar and VP of Sales David Wade.
"In the coming weeks, our team will be working as quickly as possible to take aspects of imeem that users love and migrate them to MySpace Music," according to MySpace CEO Own Van Natta. "We’ll start that transition today by redirecting imeem users to MySpace Music to discover their favorite music. As quickly as possible, we’ll be working to offer users the imeem playlists they’ve created on MySpace Music.""
During this transition period," he continued, "we invite all imeem users to check out MySpace Music’s extensive catalogue of fully licensed music and video content from major and indie artists, editorial coverage, concerts, and ticket information.
WOW – insane. Will be very interesting to see the transition play out, and to hear what imeem users think. Thanks for reporting it first, Hypebot!
smart move on their part, this has to be a huge inconvenience for the end users though.
I think Myspace evolution in the year 2010 will be interesting to watch …
what the hell what about the people accounts and everything what about the firends they mayde how are we going to get them back when you deleted imeem
wow. glad we closed our Imeem page. wasn’t a big fan.
looks like Myspace is making some major moves. Hope it works out. Get rid of some of the damn ads now!!
I am glad to see MySpace getting back into the game and making some moves. I wasn’t a huge fan of Imeem but I will be interested to see what they do with their new purchase.
huge is an understatement
For users who lost their playlists, take a look at the google cash. Just type in: site:imeem.com username. You’ll probably find many of your most popular playlist names back. You can do the same thing for your imeem friends… I’m now trying to get started with grooveshark.com… which seems like a reasonable alternative.
Sonofabitch I hate myspace, and it is shiza that imeem sold out. I use Imeem on my iphone and loved it. So now i havta sign up for myspace. F U Imeem and Myspace!
What about those of us who HATE and DESPISE Myspace? Why are we forced to go through a site we hate to get music lists, such that, I have worked over a year to build and to enjoy? Myspace sux MAGGOT BALLZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!
