Myspace is a social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music, and videos. In August 2003, several e Universe employees with Friendster accounts saw potential in its social networking features.
The group decided to mimic the more popular features of the website.
That resulted in De Wolfe and Anderson gradually losing their status within Murdoch's inner circle of executives, plus De Wolfe's mentor Peter Chernin, the President and COO of News Corp.
who was based in Los Angeles, departed the company.
There are several suggested explanations for its decline, including the fact that it stuck to a "portal strategy" of building an audience around entertainment and music, whereas Facebook and Twitter continually added new features to improve the social-networking experience. Gittelman suggested that the 0 million three-year advertisement deal with Google, while being a short-term cash windfall, was a handicap in the long run.
That deal required Myspace to place even more ads on its already heavily advertised space, which made the site slow, more difficult to use, and less flexible.
Myspace could not experiment with its own site without forfeiting revenue, while rival Facebook was rolling out a new clean site design.
We went with a lot of products that were shallow and not the best products in the world".
Around that time, specialized social media companies such as Twitter formed and began targeting Myspace users, while Facebook rolled out communication tools which were seen as safe in comparison to Myspace.
Boyd compared the shift of white, middle-class kids from the "seedy" Myspace to the "supposedly safer haven" of Facebook, to the "white flight" from American cities; the perception of Myspace eventually drove advertisers away as well.
Danah Boyd, a senior researcher at Microsoft Research, noted of social networking websites that Myspace and others were a very peculiar business—one in which companies might serially rise, fall, and disappear, as "Influential peers pull others in on the climb up—and signal to flee when it's time to get out".
The volatility of social networks was exemplified in 2006 when Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal launched an investigation into children's exposure to pornography on Myspace; the resulting media frenzy and Myspace's inability to build an effective spam filter gave the site a reputation as a "vortex of perversion".
The products division had introduced many features (communication tools such as instant messaging, a classifieds program, a video player, a music player, a virtual karaoke machine, a self-serve advertising platform, profile-editing tools, security systems, privacy filters, and Myspace book lists, among others).
