MySpace “sick” of being left out of regional social media bans

CALIFORNIA: Management at Myspace are reportedly “sick and tired” of their social media platform being continually omitted from regional blackouts. Last week, Turkish authorities moved to block YouTube following an earlier banning of Twitter, while there have been calls for the micro messaging service to be blocked in Egypt after criticism of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi began trending. Facebook, meanwhile, has been barred in Iran for a number of years.

“If Middle East government authorities actually bothered checking out our music messaging boards I think they’d be pretty shocked with the free exchange of subversive and revolutionary ideas,” said MySpace COO Rajit Singh in a shareholder’s conference call. “Only last week several of our users were discussing the prospect of a collaboration between Marcus Mumford and David Guetta. Pretty crazy stuff, eh?”

MySpace stocks dropped yesterday following the news that the only child to be named MySpace during the Egyptian Revolution in 2011 had subsequently had his name changed to Ian.

    Actually MySpace is and has been dying a slow and very painful death. They just need to give it up already sheesh! When they took away the users right to desin their own profile is when there was a mass loss of over 5 million users in 1 month that deleted their profile and switched to FB. Careful MySpace, if you be “banned” you may never recover…
