Hmmm....well I wasn't talking about what 12th graders do with the service or why it might be going away soon. The point is totally missed. I was referring to the professionals that are on it that use it for a very easy networking tool and the obvious advantages for those that would venture to use the service. Nothing cumbersome about it. 
   
  As an example......I really didn't use the service much but my manager kept on me about it so I got active on the service. She suggested I put some music up and some solos because we are trying to reach more deeply into the drumming community. Over a three day period about two hundred more drummers found out about me that didn't no anything about me three days before that. Judging by the comments and message I've received many also wanted to hear more of my music AND now listen to my jazz show through the internet.
   
   When I started getting more deeply into the service I noticed how many jazz musicians use it and I started incorporating it with my programming. One evening last week on my show I was playing some music of a particular artist and at the same time I had them up on MySpace in the studio. I was asking questions about conceptual directions with the songs and through that brief conversation I was able to share some unique info with the audience....almost in real time. 
   
  So if some would like to think that it's a joke or this service is relegated to high school/college age rockers solely that would be a mistake. It can be used to greatly enhance your program in ways that you might not have imagined.

Relaunching this summer

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



It's become uncool with 12th graders and even some younger mostly because College is right around the corner and they're migrating to Facebook, which is where you'll find the College kids. My son moved on last summer as we started the College process and most of his friends have followed. He doesn't use his myspace page any more.
