It has now become increasingly corporate- six games which I haven't asked for have been put on my site, 'friends' are accepted without me checking them out, it is assumed that I want to post from twitter to market myself, the song counter is totally erratic (one play one, day, three hundred the next), and what is prompting this rant is my attempt to upload a gig I have next week, and the fact that I can't do it unless I'm selling tickets online! It has also lost the records of all the gigs I have done since being on Myspace- or lost the location of them so I can't find them.
Signed artists who employ people to market them on social networking sites probably don't give a stuff about this, but I do.
I manage my own self, promote my own self, and need something quick and easy to let people know what I am doing.
Strangely enough, I have no desire to spend hours and hours interfacing with my computer and trillions of social networking sites to make me and my music ubiquitous.
Funnily enough, I would rather be writing, recording and performing my songs.
Am I the only Myspace user to feel like this or does everyone else want games, widgets, blogs, and all those Facebookbebolinkedinsoundcloudcdbaby things?
O for a simple life!
