Myspace is Emailing Embarrassing Old Photos to Lure Back Lapsed Users
Free Book Preview: Brand Renegades
Has Myspace become so desperate that it has now resorted to blackmailing lapsed members back into use?
The company is currently blasting out emails to former members with their old photos attached beneath a tagline that reads, “The good, the rad and the what were you thinking…”
Another stat that may astound users past and present? The social network harbors roughly 15 billion user photos in its database -- though this is a paltry sum compared to the 250 billion that Facebook currently boasts, according to the Mashable.
A confounding mission statement on the company’s website states that its aim is to “empower all artists -- from musicians and designers to writers and photographers -- helping them connect with audiences, collaborators, and partners to achieve their goals.”
