MySpace Original LogoHas anyone ever referred you to their MySpace page?

What is MySpace, what does Rupert Murdoch have to do with it and why should you care?

Learn more about this social networking site, the first giant in the field.

Nearly everyone has a presence at a website like MySpace. Perhaps you do, too. If you don't, then you likely know someone who does.

MySpace LogoMySpace.com, a social networking website, is a meeting place for people with similar interests that allows you to Add Friends and manage your relationships online using a variety of different tools.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch bought MySpace two years ago. The website proudly boasts 183,602,678 members and grows by the tens of thousands each day.

MySpace is particularly appealing to people in the entertainment industry as there is functionality for uploading audio, video, and also has blogging and bulletin features that make spreading the word about your talents a simple mini-project.

The primary reason why most people go on MySpace is to add friends and build up a network of people who are interested in the same things as they are.

Something else that you may be interested in knowing is that MySpace, unless your website is set to "Private", is crawled by Google and other search engines - and they take notice. It is an excellent platform to expand your network and affords you free advertising if you use the service to your advantage.

One way to gather links at MySpace is to leave comments on a Friend's MySpace page. For instance, if you were a friend of Voices.com at MySpace, you could leave a comment and link to your voice over website.

Another way is to make use of the blogging feature. If you link strategically, you'll not only see a rise in your inbound links but also in traffic from people visiting your website who were referred by MySpace.

See you on MySpace,

Stephanie

      ”The Lighthouse” is a new concert concept, with focus on abuse of drug and alcohol. We represent different organizations in Norway that work with these types of problems.

      The people with addiction problems, relatives, and especially the kids are in a very difficult situation, and need our help and support.

      How do we support this people?

      We support them through concerts around the country and put the focus on being open with these problems. There are still many people that feel shame about this in 2007.

      In Norway, there are people (relatives, children, and people that have been abusing drugs), that have been in torment, but are now on the right side of life. All these people have an unique experience. These groups of living miracles wish to do something for the people that still are down. We will as a group and individuals, work as a “Light House” to bring the hope and believe about the good life with out the intoxication.

      With this in mind, “The Lighthouse” wants to start concerts around the country with the theme; Openness,- Humour, and some Seriousness.
      We have contacts with different music artists, and others in Norway, who have been through a life of intoxication, and they are happy to support us in this important preventative work.
