    Red face MySpace to lay off 30 percent of staff
    Hi,

    This is my first post to the forum, itís very informative and enjoyable really.

    According to Routers, Myspace will cut its staff by 30 percent. As you can guess, Facebook and Twitter are very powerful competitors of myspace. There are many more competitor in online community industry and I wonder which one will become most powerful. Any predictions?

    MySpace trolled the conferences a few years ago acting like they were interested in working with affiliates. Actually, they were only trying to find buyers for their adspace. Since no one but ringtones and wallpaper were able to monetize it, it doesn't surprise me that they are downsizing.

    Here's a prediction, Google Wave will replace Facebook and Twitter in two years!

    MySpace Has 120 Million Uniques and had 1400 Employees --- Hi5 Has 60 Million Uniques but only 60 Employees?? Yes, MySpace laid off 400 employees be at about 1000, BUT they might have many more to go ... and they are now playing catchup to FB stats wise.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko
