Is MySpace The YouTube Killer? No!

Recommended Posts

Autumn Davis | Staff Writer

MySpace has some claws and they want to sink them into YouTube. The

question is, can the place for friends "broadcast itself" to a higher

number of visitors than YouTube?

Since "most of their traffic comes from us," MySpace's COO said of

YouTube in September, "we ought to be able to match them if not exceed

them" with MySpace's own video tool. MySpace, for some reason, seems to

think that they have contributed to the success of YouTube via linking

them on their website. Those are boastful words, considering the fact

that they are overlooking an important question. If YouTube receives

major traffic from MySpace, how much does MySpace get from YouTube?

Since YouTube's inception and release to the public in July of 2005,

its number of viewers has skyrocketed and is nearing the 50 million

mark. MySpace has already reached the 50 million-viewer mark, but it

has taken them over four years to reach that milestone. In fact, the

growth trajectory of YouTube over MySpace is so quick that it

outpaced MySpace in their early years in almost every aspect.

Take for example the number of visitors both sites had in the first

16 months of their existence. In it's first 16 months MySpace's

number of visitors crept at a snail's pace to just 5 million. On the

other hand YouTube's viewer number soared to 25 million in the same

amount of time as MySpace.
