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&39;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&39;s talking, I&39;m checking Facebook. "

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&39;s what you do when your Co SUX

And it continues…

Now she&39;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&39;ll blog that.

More fun from my Twitter feed:

dberkowitz: oddest audience question so far at omma social: what&39;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&39;er asked, "and firefox?" she said, "okay, sure" – don&39;t get it ommasocial
