  • Murdoch was laughed at for paying to much money
  • Businesses can create profiles on MySpace now similar to Facebook Pages
  • Registered over 1 MM voters
  • MyAds launched recently (has anybody tried it?) – can spend as little as $20
  • 20 MM Small and Medium-size businesses in the U.S.
  • “I believe we do catch most of them” Chris DeWolfe — when asked whether they catch inappropriate profiles/content
  • Tom Anderson plays World of Warcraft, Xbox Live, Wii (Charlie Rose asked what the Wii was..oh my Charlie)
