Wait a Sec: There’s GROWTH at MySpace?

Apparently.  From Hypebot:

MySpace is reporting some cautious optimism following their relaunch in June. The company says that their audience grew from 24 million prior to launch to 31 million in its first two weeks and now sees 36 million people a day visit the website.

Really? Have you been to the new version of the site?  I have and although it’s pretty decent (certainly when compared to its ancestor), there’s been nothing about it that has encouraged me to stick around. But that’s just me.

    I don't think so, probably some PR to market MySpace. I doubt any of the millions of users decided to stick around after the upgrade. Alienating them by automatically deleting years of comments, pictures, and memories is what did it for me.
