MySpace unveils new event calendar

Posted: 02:31 PM ET

MySpace, which has long been an online hangout for musicians and music fans, is now making it easier for users to keep up with musical happenings.

The social-networking site unveiled its new global events calendar Thursday. Called MySpace Events, the feature is a “global platform that supplies artists and users with tools to create, discover and share events including an easy-to-use calendar,” said Marcus Womack, director of events and ticketing, in a MySpace blog post.

Users also will have the opportunity to sync their MySpace Events with Facebook and Twitter, making it easier for people to manage their “entire social calendar and share events across the Web,” Womack said.

MySpace will add different types of events - sports, nightlife and arts happenings - in addition to the “concerts and pop culture events” already featured on the site, Womack said.

The site also will allow users to receive alerts about future shows of their choice and purchase tickets through MySpace, a service made possible by the site’s partnership with Ticketmaster and Live Nation.

Jim H   April 15th, 2010 3:28 pm ET

sounds like a death rattle to me! the corpse does not rest easily!

since going so corporate who even uses myspace any more except those with some sort of commercial interests?

Carlos   April 15th, 2010 4:12 pm ET

GrimeSpace is so done. the only people who use that are teens and people who get caught on to catch a predator

gregory   April 15th, 2010 4:16 pm ET

I still use myspace and it is still the best place to connect with music period

bob   April 15th, 2010 4:50 pm ET

Wow, how groundbreaking! This will benefit the dozens of people who use MySpace.

James   April 15th, 2010 5:35 pm ET

This product wasn't built by MySpace. It is the product of Slingshot Labs, News Corp's incubator. MySpace finally integrated it. Smart move.

MySpace is better than Facebook when it comes to music and art. Facebook is boring to look at... a sea of blue and white profiles (of a bunch of mainstream people).

Ryan   April 15th, 2010 11:08 pm ET

Myspace lost the following and respect of most because it was not secure enough, it seems to be a place for kids (who needs that none sense) and most people use it only for music and not on the merits of the site. I stopped using it when I could not use my own music on the site and had to use their crappy stuff. Sorry but all of the music lovers I know have moved on to greener pastures!

Steve Mascord   April 16th, 2010 12:54 am ET

But what is the impact on the display calendar on your homepage, which no longer seems to work...?

lIllI   April 16th, 2010 6:32 am ET

Too little too late. MySpace is a dying site. Adding a calendar this late in the game for the site is like throwing a bucket of water on a house fire.

Steve Romine   April 16th, 2010 9:30 am ET

Myspace Still exists??? That is so 2007.....

Kevin   April 16th, 2010 10:01 am ET

Who CARES, no one uses MySpace anymore.

julia   April 16th, 2010 10:56 am ET

i do!!!

david b   April 16th, 2010 4:33 pm ET

wow way to change the major thing that people still used the site for. *gag*

FB events sucks to use, and is even worse to find unknown events for. they make myspace more similar to that. Would have been better to improve the normal calendar they had then upgrade the events setup that they always had in the background anyway.

Sency   April 16th, 2010 10:28 pm ET

Myspace aint' dead yet – I think they are going to start to make a comeback

Ashim Dutta   April 19th, 2010 11:03 am ET

New event calendar is being result of theoritical research(mathematics).

R   April 21st, 2010 10:00 am ET

cryspace sucks. it's dead and no one cares.

J   April 22nd, 2010 12:08 pm ET

This new calendar on Myspace may be more efficient but it takes me twice as long to fill out the info to post stuff to each date. And since I use it for the club I book for – where we have events every day – I guess I'm S.O.L. in that dept.

Wish they gave you the option to use the old calendar – so much faster and easier. Oh well, I'll live;)

And to those bad mouthing myspace, well, it was there when you needed it wasn't it? Now you don't, so 'it sucks' – nice. Plus, it started out as a way for people in the music biz to get noticed – not to gab about how you are 'heading into the mall to look for new shoes- wish me luck!' A lot of music people still use it so chill – the two can exist together. Don't be so down on it – some of you act like it wronged you or something ya angry twerps. Facebook is cool – but isn't it the son of Myspace.... uh ya....think about that.

From AM radio to FM to 8tracks to cassettes to CDs, the technology for automotive music has advanced IN 40 YEARS. However, MySpace and the like change features even faster than the cell phone companies. Fortunately, I don't have to purchase new hardware every time MySpace changes clothes. UNfortunately, too often the features are not retro-compatible and I had no choice as to whether to upgrade to the new "events" calendar on MySpace and no migration path was provided from old calendar to new calendar. My weekly show schedule, which only changes a few times a year, has now becomes an endless series of daily events. I'm frustrated but will try to continue to keep my "friends" informed of my shows. After all, I get more back than what I pay for by using MySpace and Facebook.

In any case, the standards of propitious news-casting haven't been disposed of through this weighty network index. Google in truth thinks instances take the look and meat of articles, particularly as a component of its XML. Major news-casting is tied in with being straightforward and as level headed as could be expected.

Benefit of what reason do you meditate on the Google XML sitemap creeps, lists, and distributes visitor site soothe from CNN, BBC, Techcrunch, The Divider Street Logbook and others in its muster items?
