Imagine how happy I am that MySpace is currently being trounced by Facebook! Every person who defects from MySpace or, more importantly, stops directing people towards it prevents money going into Murdoch’s pocket.
Basically, I’m in favour of anything that hurts Murdoch’s Evil Empire,
So far, the one big advantage MySpace has had is that it’s the first port of call for musicians. Name a band, google them and you can find their MySpace and listen to songs.
Now, Facebook has taken up the challenge and introduced Band Pages (as well as Pages for Actors, TV Shows, Brands..). Hopefully, this means there’s at least a choice if a band wants an instant website complete with songs, vids, discography etc.
I’ve just created a Facebook page for White Town. It’s a little bit superfluous since I have this site, all sparkly and spangly. But what the hell, it’s free and maybe it can be slightly more interactive than this site. And every time someone’s looking at my band Facebook page, they’re not looking at MySpace.

I had to take my links to friends’ sites today. It used to be on the right. Sadly, the links are now full of spam
Apparently, it’s a known issue, unresolved. Let’s hope it’s fixed soon! I’m just posting this in case any other WordPress users have the same thing happen. Also, to let my friends know that I haven’t suddenly gone off their websites!
