MySpace: what worked and didn't work- artists' perspectives

Nancy Baym posted this blog entry where she summarizes the advantages and pitfalls of MySpace as a musician's networking tool. Some of the highlights:
  • MySpace reinvented the musician/audience connection
  • Social networking's "friend" counts in some ways replaced SoundScan
  • MySpace's clunky interface = musician participation killer
  • The race and class stigma associated with MySpace deters audience participation
Does MySpace have a future for music?
