It seems that these notes about bluegrass artists creating pages on MySpace.com are becoming a regular occurrence. Find our previous posts with info on bluegrass artist MySpace pages here.
Tim Stafford just contacted us to mention that he has a personal artist site, and a Blue Highway band space now up on MySpace.com.
Kip Martin, a noted DC-area bass player, founder of the DC Bluegrass Union, and occasional correspondent for Bluegrass Today also has a presence on MySpace.
MySpace.com has been heavily promoting their extensive membership base, boasting of more than 50 million registered users of the web-based community. A recent article in Web Pro News, however, suggests that the actual number of regular users may be much smaller. The author, David A. Utter, speculates that this “smaller number” may be 8-10 million visitors who log on at least once a week, which is still a fairly impressive number.
The site is especially popular with teen and college aged internet users, and the enduring advertiser interest in this demographic may be a primary reason for the attention MySpace.com is receiving from major media players.
