I have maintained MySpace pages for several years. I've got one for me, one for Spooky Cute Designs, one for Riverside Writers and one for Richard. MySpace used to be easy to navigate, the profile editing was easy too, and it was full of lively social networking. Spam was a nuisance but readily deleted.
Then they "improved" it. New layouts and a new direction were imposed.
Now the site is clogged with trivia, and trying to update a profile page is long-winded and fiddly - and that's when it works. I've been trying to update Riverside Writers' page since the middle of last week and the site software isn't responding, the 'Help' isn't helpful, and my email query has yet to be responded to.
As for the promotion of new bands, there's a good reason why most of them languish in obscurity. A haircut doth not a musician make.
I am not entertained.
