How much more can MySpace take?

Social networking site has been losing ground to Farcebook since its arch rival set up shop on the other side of the street. They tried a niche pop group advertising, but Farcebook groups had more adherants, and the bands abandoned Myspace in favour of Farcebook.

It seems no matter what Myspace try, Farcebook is there, bigger and more subscribed, and sometimes, better. Myspace did games, Farcebook did Mafia Wars; My space did home page personalisation, Farcebook did confusing privacy policies, Myspace did Find Your Friends, Farcebook did Bring Your Friends from Myspace.

Yes Myspace keep fighting. It has too, it was the first free social networking site where you stood a chance of finding somebody you kew, and it changed the game.

They redesigned the site several times, let people locate friends and find music they like easily, but is it a losing battle?

Farcebook have reached half a billion signed up users today. Admitted, a million of those left after joining the Leave Farcebook group, set up by somebody called Andy Tomerson of Spacemy, for a laugh, but with one in twelve people on planet now on Farcebook, including one third of people in the UK, it looks like co-founder of Myspace, Tom Anderson is throwing in the towel.

"If anybody's got any really good ideas for helping MySpace," said Anderson, "then you can leave a message on my Farcebook wall."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
