Bigger than Google+, MySpace isn’t dead yet

Surprising, not so much the number of accounts there but the amount of time people still spend on MySpace.

Gigaom

MySpace, the grand daddy of social services is still wheezing along, comScore says in its latest social media report. In fact it is bigger than Tumblr and Google Plus. I have no idea where (and why) MySpace is getting so much traffic – still. Infact, people spend more time on MySpace, a dying platform than on Google Plus says a lot about the latter. Compare the time spent on Google Plus and Facebook and realize that Google is climbing what is essentially the side of a glass building. Also, did you notice Pinterest just cracked the top ten list! As I said, Pinterest is hawt!

    According to Google’s own stats, MySpace is still in the top 100 sites worldwide, ahead of Tumblr & HuffPo. Surprisingly, Reddit is nowhere in sight:

    Just looking at that list and counting Social networking sites, MySpace comes in at number 5.
