There is a glitch on the popular social network MySpace today. I was talking with a counter clerk in the Central Burbank Library this afternoon and overheard a young man complain to another clerk that the computer he was using, “was broken.” The clerk calmly asked what website he was on.
“MySpace,” the man replied. He was then told the site was having problems accepting user passwords. Apparently, the problem had been going on all day.
In January 2008, the Los Angeles based MySpace reported more than 110 million monthly active users worldwide. The company claims one in four Americans on the web is visiting a MySpace page. I would imagine, that number probably dropped a bit with the technical snafu today.
