New Management at MySpace Cuts 420 Jobs

MySpace was a unique idea. And it was a master of social media and networking, initially. But it has turned into a teenage-based flash of babble and nonsense. There is nothing mature left of it, and that’s the crowd that it should have remained selling to. It’s allowance of page customization would have been a perfect combination to what Facebook initially was going for, and even Facebook is getting far from what seemed to be its initial draw. The groups and additions and apps and everything else are a jumble of everything unnecessary and unneeded. It’s drastically slowing the process, performance, viewing pleasure, maturity, and effectiveness of itself… which will eventually cause it to die out as well, just like MySpace, which, go figure, copies everything MySpace does. They just play off of each others ideas, and again, revert to a “kid-like” atmosphere. Ridiculous. You ruin a good thing. And 420 people had to lose a job over it all? Equally ridiculous. They simply couldn’t pay their bills and were failing, hence a new CEO. They all do it. Trying to save it. Won’t happen. Maybe those 420 have a head start on the other 1,000 at finding a new and safe job to stick to, because MySpace is a fail waiting to happen. He simply can’t effectively manage people if he needed to cut 1/3rd of the company. Budget cut or something, don’t just mass layoff. They’re there for a reason… And probably knew more about the company than does at the moment.
