Last few days, for some odd reason the blogs have become obsessed with MySpace. Some are bringing up issues, which GigaOM readers had hotly debated earlier. Being a perpetual bear, I look for what could go wrong. A lot, but this negativity doesn’t really amount to anything! Neither do the competitors. Just look at the page views – This Alexa graph for MySpace should be enough for all to see – No Friendster, this MySpace. Danah Boyd has a great essay on this.

Om – i decided to take up the Friendster/MySpace thing in an essay that you may (or may not) appreciate. http://www.danah.org/papers/FriendsterMySpaceEssay.html
a little nicer than the normal alexa
also with opera mini, myspace is one of the default bookmarks when you load it on your cell phone.
Om, the real metric to look at here is reach (aka unique users) not page views. I think this chart says it all:
i agree. whatever metric you look at – these guys are a phenomen, and not going away anytime soon. the best news is that the guys at fox interactive understand what they have and are trying their best to keep the “network” true to its roots etc.
MySpace.com is now processing 1.5 Billion page views per day
MySpace.com handles 2.3 million concurrent users during the day
