    Well... unofficially anyway. I was going through some of our web stats from last season... and myspace dropped off the face of the earth... We didn't put as much into it as facebook, of course... but is myspace officially dead to you? Or do you get out of it what you put into it?

    As a "myspace-age" user when it came out, it was all the rage...then that sneaky mark zuckerberg came along with facebook and eradicated myspace in all it's glory!

    It's DONE.

    I just don't waste my time with it, no one uses it, and Facebook is much better designed for networking, I would strongly suggest using mainly Facebook and Twitter as social networking to the public, in addition to your own website. I would even go so far as to invest in a Facebook ad so anyone who searches haunted houses in your area will start to see your haunt on the side of EVERY page they click on.

    So funny you posted this as I just logged in there for the first time in several months and thought the same - it's dead and time to delete the account.

    They've just done a layoff, again, and News Corps' COO during the earnings call said they are ready to sell it to a new potential buyer. Here is a article to read about it for those interested, http://mashable.com/2011/02/02/news-...lling-myspace/

    I would recommend to haunters the same I recommend my clients, focus on Facebook and FourSquare for promoting their venues on social networks. MySpace is dead.

    I liked the ability to post longer stories, messages on Myspace, but it seems like they were mostly ignored? ='s effort wasted, mostly.

    I deleted my 2 accounts months ago. I kept on getting a bunch of friend requests from half naked women and garage bands. I feel facebook is much better for networking and keeping in touch with friends and fans of my haunt. I admit myspace was fun and easy to use about 5 years ago but it just lost it's touch.
