MySpace is a social networking site that enables members to make friends, write blog posts, add music, and customize their MySpace pages.

Description

Update

MySpace is one of the world's largest social networks, with about 125 million users. Originally inspired by Friendster, MySpace quickly grew to become the world's largest social network, before being overtaken by Facebook. User pages are highly customizable and support integration with widgets such as Slide or YouTube. MySpace provides users with a way to connect around content and culture.

MySpace was started as a side project of the internet marketing company eUniverse (now called Intermix Media) in August 2003. See More
