Artists To Be Featured In TV Campaign

Alongside Portfolio, MySpace has launched a TV/video ad campaing to showcase some of the artists on the site.  Featured first are Portugal. The Man, Amadéus and Ace Da God.

“Myspace is committed to empowering the creative community,” April Thrun, MySpace’s VP Of Marketing told Billboard, “and within that DNA there’s the original social network, but also what’s evolved organically in the creative ecosystem. We’ve been getting a lot of feedback from artists since we launched in June, and Portfolio is a way for us to make some of that feedback actionable.”

  1. Wow, I’ve never seen that many blatant paid digital street team posts on this site. MySpace needs to tell the lemmings which sites to stay away from. This isn’t PerezHilton.com.

  2. Jeri, I had the exact same feeling when I read the first three comments. 🙂
    Unfortunately, MySpace completely destroyed itself in June 2013. If they don’t bring back ALL of the features of the classic MySpace, nobody will ever bother to update their accounts there. Their traffic is so little nowadays (it has been decreasing too fast since 12 June 2013), and they still don’t get it.
    MySpace, if you really want to become relevant again, bring back the classic version.

  3. I will never use myspace again after how they treated their classic users. Removing all blogs and messages without a warning and refusing to this day to allow users to export those messages. Many lost communication with loved ones who have since passed away. Disgusting, arrogant and classless move by Myspace to ignore this.
