Before Facebook, there was Myspace… then it died. But how could such a giant like Myspace die? What caused the death of Myspace? Let’s take a closer look at Myspace vs Facebook. The difference between Facebook and Myspace is that Facebook had a simple uniform well organized layout for all user profiles.. where as the customizable Myspace layouts were becoming more and more cluttered… to an extent where some profiles started to take a long time to load or wouldn’t even load at all on slower connections. I think this was one of the main reasons for the death of Myspace.
Another reason for the death of Myspace is that Facebook was being innovative, while Myspace was getting old and boring. Facebook introduced the innovative and fun apps. People were really digging them.
And finally,Â Facebook had international targeting, while Myspace was mainly USA targeted.
