MySpace Decline is Accelerating

New numbers from Comscore indicate the demise of MySpace is happening faster than most had expected. Between January and February 2011, MySpace lost 14.4% of its monthly users. In raw numbers, that's a drop to 63 million from 73 million. They had twice this many users a year ago.

A social network relies on the network effect. If you cannot communicate with the people you want to on a service, you won't use it, other people won't use it, and it dies. The time when MySpace stops being appealing for just about everyone could be fast approaching. The likes of Facebook may want to take note of this scenario. The internet is a fickle beast.
