MySpace Making Minor Strides After Music Shuffle

I was going to reminisce about all the things that were popular when MySpace was at its peak, but it wasn’t THAT long ago – it just feels like it because of this digital age we live in. In its heyday, MySpace saw 75.9 million unique visitors every month, but that dropped to 33 million when the site was sold in June 2011 (via Hypebot). The site kept falling even after the sale, and hit a low of 24 million. But since then, it has gained just over 1 million users, up 4% from December 2011.

“We went from zero signups per day to 40,000,” said Chris Vanderhook, the company’s chief operating officer told the New York Times. This is impressive rebound, and bands should take notice and consider expanding into MySpace if not already there. We’ll see how the next few months go, and if the growth can continue.
