MySpace: A Magazine for Friends?
Posted on September 5, 2006
AdAge shocked everyone when they reported recently that MySpace, the popular social network, might be planning to launch a print magazine. AdAge said the print magazine would be published in a partnership with Nylon, a culture, music and fashion print magazine.
MySpace told AdAge, "We're in the process of modeling it. Our main concern is the MySpace brand. We don't want to do anything that would hurt the brand."
Nylon has worked with MySpace in the past and they have a MySpace profile but none of this means that a print magazine is a certainty.
Everyone could be jumping the gun here. Red Herring says MySpace spokesperson Dani Dudek told people not to expect a MySpace print magazine anytime soon. Dudek also didn't deny that there could one day be a print mag from MySpace.
