Chapter 8: What Else is In MySpace.com?

These chat groups, especially the Romance & Relationship ones, can be very provocative with sexual innuendos and profanity. Most of the groups are similar to ones found on Google Groups where members can post questions on any number of topics and talk with people who share the same interests. As shown above, the number of active groups on MySpace is staggering and growing at a phenomenal rate along with the rest of MySpace.

Information on Music, Film, Videos, Classified Ads

Because MySpace.com has exploded in popularity, many bands, individual artists, celebrities, and others have created pages to connect with their fans, introduce themselves to a new audience, and promote their current music, film, video, and more.

Some recognizable artists such as the Pussycat Dolls, Rascal Flatts, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Black Eyed Peas all maintain MySpace pages to talk with fans and promote themselves. Most relatively unknown artists also see MySpace as a great way to create a fan base.

MySpace provides the perfect outlet for artists to connect with fans, increase their exposure, and ultimately promote their new film, video, music, or other project.
