Just when I was getting traction with MySpace, it seems that trend is hitting the skids.
According to a report in the UK Observer, teens are turning their attentions to FaceParty and turning their backs on MySpace. “I definitely prefer Faceparty to MySpace,” says one of 6 million users. “MySpace is all corporate now.”
Finding relief from adult scrutiny is a key reason teens are making the switch. Dave Barnfort, director of Faceparty, says “The grown-ups know all about MySpace, but very little about us. Their kids get home from school and spend hours on it. We try really hard to keep out of the press.”
Sorry, Dave, but I just had to make mention of this. But with my LJ friends as my witnesses, I won’t tell another soul.
