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:
szetela: @dberkowitz is MySpace a sponsor?
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.
