MySpace 100 Million Friend March

A few days ago the behemoth web playground known as MySpace hit a new milestone: 100 million registered users. When I started researching my recently published MySpace Music Marketing book in January, the total number of MySpace users then was between 50 and 60 million. That's a lot of growth in six short months.

On a related note, my total number of MySpace friends recently topped 1,000 at If my math is correct, that means I have now made friends with .001 % of all MySpace users -- a whopping one out of every hundred thousand MySpacers is my pal.

Rock on! :-)
