When it comes to social networks, everybody is head over heals about Facebook these days, but you don’t want to forget about MySpace.
According to Hitwise, MySpace was still the most popular site, based on US Internet usage, for September 2007.
Facebook comes in at #10 (see the list below).
Anyhow, back in the spring of 2006, I urged affiliate marketers to claim their names (sites, brands, etc.) on MySpace.
Well, I guess lots of folks claimed names, and then never really did anything with the accounts (myself included).
And just now I got the following message from MySpace:
You have not logged into MySpace since January 1, 2007. That makes us sad!
You’re also holding a very valuable piece of MySpace real estate, which is the username/URL you chose. That makes MySpace users sad! Why? Because you’ve got a URL someone may want, and you’re not really using it!
Since it doesn’t look like you’re an active user on this account, we will be resetting your username/URL so that someone else can use it.
To prevent this from happening, simply login to MySpace before Oct 31, 2007.
NOTE: We are only resetting the URLs of inactive accounts. We will *not* delete your account. We are simply trying to free up the username/URLs for people who actually want to use them. Thanks!
To login, simply visit http://www.myspace.com
So go back and get your presence going on MySpace before you lose a good name or seven. There are lots of eyeballs, so don’t waste the opportunity.
