Unfortunately, many bands have relied on social networks to be their hub for information, instead of purchasing a website. One of the popular strategies I’ve seen is buying a URL and directing it to a customized Myspace profile. Are you one of these cases? Well say good-bye to your layout.
Myspace has sent out an email notifying artists that their profiles will be upgraded to their new theme. All profiles will be upgraded by Nov. 29, 2010. I like how they sugar-coat it with encouraging statistics.
Over a million artists have already upgraded and seen increased engagement around song plays, video plays, photo views — all the things that are important to you. We’re now going to be upgrading ALL artists on Myspace to the new profile over the coming weeks.
Thanks for the warm notice Myspace, but what about the artists who paid to have their profiles customized? It seems like they are left out in the cold on this move. What happens if you don’t upgrade your page?
