Loss of 500 Jobs At Myspace

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Rupert Murdoch, the head of media
giant News Corp., and his firm's
Myspace, a social networking web
site, gave notice of a restructuring
Tuesday that will result in the loss
of 500 jobs world-wide.

Advertising revenue and monthly visitors
to Myspace has been down.

The new organizational structure will
enable us to move more nimbly, develop
products more quickly and attain more
flexibility on the financial side,"
Myspace Chief Executive Mike Jones
explained in a statement.

Myspace never really figured out which
one it wanted to be," Dave McClure,
founding partner of 500 Start-ups.
"For the life of me I don't know why
they weren't able to pull it off."

The social network struggled to innovate.
The first signs of Myspace's troubles
starred in 2008, when News Corp. reported
that it was falling short of its $1-billion
revenue projections for the web site.

People familiar with the situation said News
Corp. is looking-over potential buyers.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
