The virus that is Myspace can hurt you
There is nothing wrong with trying to use one of the most powerful social networks in the world as an avenue to create wealth. By wealth, I mean contacts, friends, and potential clients who may purchase a service or product you promote online.
The problem is knowing how to do it correctly and the obvious annoying way it's done by many.
I admit that I have a personal myspace page but it's separate from my business website: www.omadsense.com .
But I unlike many others choose to leave the comment box open for anyone to write me and choose not to pre-approve comments on my myspace page. This how ever opens the door to people who request to be friends and then spend all their time leaving comments that act like we're friends and their picking up a conversation we had - only to place a link to something their promoting.
This is the incorrect way to go about using this powerful network.
I am going to have to block my comment box and even pre-approve comments just so I can control what gets put on my page. Don't get me wrong. I understand the principal behind it. You place a comment with a link to your promotion - people visit my page and run into your ad.
The correct way to do this is to make friends. Real actual friends. Provide something of interest on your page and try to provide something of interest to the page you visit that fits their style or subject matter. If you have to, use the edicts we all should know from blogging. If you read a blog about horses - your not going to make a comment about dogs! So why do it in myspace.
I bring a lot of info. on how to make money online on my www.omadsense.com website. But I try very hard to keep my myspace page separate from that world. In fact, my myspace page is more of a personal site than an attempt to get traffic to my site.
What people fail to see is that more and more people will block comments or turn their page private becuase of this. Also, as Myspace tries to conform to more constraining rules of Google, Ebay and others as they monitize myspace. They will implement ways to block "SPAM". That's right - I used the word spam.
Which in turn will make it worse for every one else. So please - if you want to say hello, fine. But don't try to use my personal myspace page as your bill board.
If you want to promote your product, service, or site - do it the right way and you will get more out of it.
