Let’s Keep MySpace.com in Perspective, Folks (PR People)

MySpace.com is a great promotional tool and it should be utilized. But, let’s not go and start releaseing press releases where the MySpace.com page URL is the only URL in the release. Let’s not forget to mention the actual official URLs for the artists, labels, etc. in question. The idea is to bring MySpace.com’s audience to you – not to bring your audience to MySpace.com.

i've been seeing alot of movie commercials lately, where they advertise their website as being a myspace page. I just don't understand why

Thanks for the cmment. Yeah, I agree. I mean, again, MySpace.com is a great promotional vehicle... but, yeah, they need to be promoting those official websites. :)

I would imagine Fox movies and TV shows will use Myspace now b/c News Corp. now owns it.

That's a good point. Although, I see feel they should be promoting the official sites with it.
