Microsoft and MySpace: Two Headlines that Reveal Much

March 30, 2009

A short honk: two headlines. The first is “MySpace Shrinks as Facebook, Twitter and Bebo Grab Its Users” from the Guardian (a UK dead tree outfit). You can read the story here which makes the point that MySpace is in decline. The second is “MySpace and Microsoft Team Up: What Does it Mean for Facebook and Google?” from Mashable here. For the addled goose, the two headlines provide a clear look at Microsoft’s social software timing. I get the same feeling when I miss my bus. I don’t think the GOOG will lose much sleep.
