MySpace is combining social media and portals into a social portal.

Five-year-old company, profitable "since [they] turned the lights on."

40% of all online moms are on MySpace. They're online 11 hours a week.

"As usage shifts to social networking, there is no longer a race to build destinations but constellations."

This has become a sales pitch. I'm not going to blog as much about that. I can only take so much. My tweet on this: "MySpace keynote devolved into tedious sales pitch really quickly. Plus, while she's talking, I'm checking Facebook. #ommasocial"

This got some fun responses on Twitter:

davehonig: @dberkowitz, @joemarchese,@lazerow, i was expecting more of a keynote. some more thought provoking less pitch.

szetela: @dberkowitz is MySpace a sponsor?

markdrosos: Sitting next to @dberkowitz and agree on the sales pitch of myspace. Took about 4min.
ryanswagar: RT: @dberkowitz MySpace keynote devolved into tedious sales pitch really quickly. = of course it did! That's what you do when your Co SUX

And it continues…

Now she's telling the OMMA Social audience how the social graph works. So glad this is groundbreaking.

Got 13 million downloads of a Chevy Tree planting widget where you have to water it every day. Okay, I'll blog that.

More fun from my Twitter feed:

dberkowitz: oddest audience question so far at omma social: what's the best computer and web browser for viewing myspace?

socialmedium: @dberkowitz that is seriously bizarre. What was the answer?

dberkowitz: @socialmedium she answered, "uhh, i use a mac." and then Q'er asked, "and firefox?" she said, "okay, sure" – don't get it #ommasocial
