What is MySpace?

This is the third in a series of “What Is …” (see also Website Tips for more of this series). You may have heard Pastor Tony use many Internet based terms in his sermons and had no idea as to what he was referring. This series is designed to help everyone understand these terms and their relevance to today’s world.

According to Wikipedia:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MySpace is a popular social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music and videos internationally. It is headquartered in Beverly Hills, California, USA,[1] where it shares an office building with its immediate owner, Fox Interactive Media; in turn, the owner of Fox Interactive (and therefore MySpace), News Corporation, is headquartered in New York City.
According to Alexa Internet, MySpace is currently the world’s sixth most popular English-language website and the sixth most popular website in any language,[2] and the third most popular website in the United States, though it has topped the chart on various weeks[3]. The service has gradually gained more popularity than similar websites to achieve nearly 80% of visits to online social networking websites.[3] It has become an increasingly influential part of contemporary popular culture, especially in English speaking countries.[citation needed]
The company employs 300 staff[4] and does not disclose revenues or profits separately from News Corporation. With the 100 millionth account being created on August 9, 2006,[5] in the Netherlands[6] and a news story claiming 106 million accounts on September 8, 2006,[7] the site reportedly attracts new registrations at a rate of 230,000 per day.
