MySpace, Apparently Still Around, Loses 10 Million Users in Month

myspace
MySpace -- wait, what? yes -- lost more than 10 million users in a matter of weeks. ComScore reported the drop came in a single month, between January and February. The fall follows a larger trend; the social network has bled some 50 million users in the last year.

The timing has a bit of chicken/egg feel to it, these numbers come right on the heels of January's massive layoffs, when nearly half of the staff was axed. The BBC report reads a little like an obit ("It was the social network site that helped launch the careers of artists like Arctic Monkeys, Kate Nash and Lily Allen.") You almost gotta feel for the site. Almost.
