MySpace is an online community that connects people with their friends' friends. Based on the "six degrees of separation" idea, users on MySpace create and share personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, journals, music, and videos with a network of like-minded people.
Founded in August of 2003 by Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson, MySpace took the world by storm. In July of 2005, Rupert Murdoch of News Corp. purchased MySpace for $580 million and somewhere around September of 2006, the 100 millionth account was created. Facebook has since emerged as the leading competitor and MySpace is all but forgotten.
