Hey, blog readers. Check out today's CNN.com story on MySpace, in which a bunch of tech writers say it's unlikely the big social network will be able to make a comeback. Its popularity has flatlined, and, if you think about it, Web sites almost never make a comeback once their coolness starts to wane.
But what do you think? Is this it for MySpace? What do you like and dislike about the site?
There's always a chance MySpace could prove its skeptics wrong. Or it could bounce back as something a bit different. Take Friendster for example. The early online social network was hugely popular in the U.S. and then seemed to disappear. Now it's one of the hottest Web sites in Southeast Asia, with its execs working from Australia, not San Francisco.
And one last bit of fuel for the conversation: Check out what seems to be the MySpace page of the site's new chief executive, Owen Van Natta. What do you think?
