Myspace profile not updating
It may not be the coolest social network any more, but Myspace is still here and vying for your attention.This i Phone app, like the web app, concedes that you probably use Facebook and Twitter and allows you to sign in with those accounts, as well as Myspace.
The stream gives you either a traditional news wall, made of updates from Myspace, Twitter and Facebook, or you can use the Grid view.You cannot delete or edit posts you make, and both Facebook and Twitter are better served by their own apps. However, it doesn't stand up well as a social media app when compared to the competition.It was unkind irony that just as My Space was reshuffling its leadership with the hope of reviving its fortunes, Yahoo (s yhoo) quietly announced the end of Geo Cities.It was as if the hand of fate overseeing Internet startups was offering My Space an uncomfortable peek into its own future.Like Geo Cities, My Space won quick success by making it easy for people to build a customized online presence.Grid is split into three parts, your live stream, Artists on Myspace and Discover.
The Artists stream takes your i Phone library, and gives you news on your favorite stars, while Discover sends you updates on movies, celebs and more.
Discover seems to be unpersonalized, and just a stream of celebrity marketing.
You can also use 'super post' to update your status across the three social networks, use Myspace chat, read your mail and more. It doesn't take advantage of the network's great music and video at all, can be slow and a little unstable.
Like Geo Cities, My Space sold out to a bigger media company (s nws) that ended up a caretaker for its long years of decay.
And now My Space is slowly becoming, like Geo Cities, an abandoned amusement park on the web.
The latter seems unlikely, since it would require undoing fateful decisions that My Space made several years ago, decisions that made good sense at the time but have since been draining vitality from the company.
