Schadenfreude High of the Day: RootMusic's BandPage Application for Facebook May Mark the Death of MySpace

July 20, 2010

Rebecca Dirks of Premier Guitar’s June 2010 issue:

If you have a band, there’s a good chance you’re still on MySpace, despite countless reasons to ditch the dying social network.  For starters, music profiles were not included in the site’s 2.0 redesign in 2008, leaving musicians to navigate the same clunky, outdated layout the site launched with […]  When RootMusic (rootmusic.com) launched its BandPage Facebook application in March, it seemed like the answer for musicians looking to migrate to the wildly popular social networking site.

You can bet that my younger brother and I will happily create a BandPage profile for Child of the 20th (our side project) within the next week, especially now that a handsome and dynamic new Facebook-friendly alternative is available. 

My only trepidant caveat-within-a-question is: What social networking site will fulfill the role of effectively sponging the narcissistic, fast-food-addicted, adolescent dreck of the American teenage wasteland if ad-bloatware extraordinaire, MySpace, actually gets buried?

Facebook users do not want that kind of migration. 

Or should I say … invasion?
