More On MySpace Music’s Imeem Purchase

image from

Sources tell Hypebot that the primary reason for yesterday's abrupt shift of imeem users to MySapce Music was because the deal only worked economically if imeem were shuttered. That meant that they no longer had the licenses or assets to continue operating the site. MySpace essentially bought the few parts of imeem that it cared about after the shutdown.

Visitors to imeem are now directed straight to MySpace Music and the special page above where they are told that "imeem is now part of MySpace".

Artist pages are gone. The only explanation offered is, "We suggest you sign up as a MySpace Music artist". The net is ablaze with unhappy fans. Why? "MySpace is working to migrate your imeem playlist to MySpace Music. We’ll email you about that once we have more details." MySpace better hurry.

  1. Angry consumer here – I will NOT support MySpace or any of its advertisers in protest.
    Shut down the site? Sad, but understandable in this economy.
    Cut off my profile with out warning?
    Bad form.
    Getting together a group to move to Grooveshark.

  2. That was such a shitty & abrupt move…what a way to piss of their loyal consumer base. Horrible user experience. I hope they can turn it around quickly and provide some type of incentive for the former die hard imeem community.

  3. This sucks badly. I truly hope that they migrate every imeem user’s playlist to myspace music. It was very difficult for me to find the music that I had on my imeem playlist
