It’s common knowledge that Facebook has supplanted MySpace as the premier social network online. But does that mean that MySpace is no longer useful?

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that. There are still millions of users on MySpace. But MySpace has been relegated to a niche website, unlike Facebook.

So what is MySpace’s niche?

As it has always been, MySpace is a hangout for musicians and other creative artists. If you visit the site you’ll notice that it’s top navigation bar has the following options:

  • People
  • Music
  • Video
  • Games
  • Topics
  • Events
  • More

While MySpace has done a lot to upgrade its look and to provide new offerings for its users, unless you are in the entertainment industry, or you cater services to the entertainment industry, then I don’t see a whole lot of value in there for you. It may be there, but I don’t see it.

MySpace does have a snazzier look than it used to have, there’s no doubt. But don’t go on the look alone.

I would suggest that non-entertainment industry professionals seek social media opportunities at LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and niche social sites that cater to your industry. Leave MySpace for the kids, the musicians, and the entertainers.
