MySpace Launches Self-Serve Ads For All

3 thoughts on “MySpace Launches Self-Serve Ads For All”

  1. This is a nice move by myspace; but it continues to follow their stale old act of creating large amounts of revenue on the backs of members and their content.

    myspace is easily worth at least a billion, and where is the value coming from other than members/the communities content and activities.

    How much ad revenue is myspace sharing with members that generate ad revenue for them ? Are they giving anything back to the community that has put them where they are ?

    I am technology consultant, and this summer I became so feed up with the share cropper mentality of sites like myspace that I decided to build an application that shares the wealth that is created with the community.

    We also have a stand alone ad service and we have a granular micro revenue sharing service that allows members to share their revenue with Friends, Groups, or Causes.

    And unlike myspace and the rest we will be releasing most of the service to the open source community because we know we are not the smartest guys in the room.

  2. I still really have to question MySpace’s ad targeting system. Facebook’s, although annoying, gives me ads based on my interests and my general demographic.

    Every ad I’ve ever been shown by MySpace seems to be completely oblivious to me. I’m a married man and I constantly receive a barrage of ads for “hot singles in my area”, etc.

    We’ll see how it pans out though.
