Is MySpace broken beyond repair? I ask because a quick look at the November Help pages shows a non-stop catalogue of serious problems with the underlying technology. ‘Can’t Add Friends’, ‘Messages/Inbox Down’, ‘Can’t View Friends’, ‘Home Page Down’, ‘Events are Down’ and so on. Not just once, mind you, but on and on and on. I know that these could be simple routine issues, but so many? And in just one month?
If I was reading this as an investor I’d really start worrying that maybe the site has reached its technical capacity and is literally breaking apart under the strain. Which wouldn’t bode well for the future of the service really, would it? I suspect that in any case if these problems continue, the users are going to start bailing, so watch those numbers!
