Can MySpace, the once dominant social network, capitalize on Facebook’s privacy PR troubles?
In a blog post yesterday, the company announced that they are, “planning the launch of a simplified privacy setting for our user profiles.”
“Given all the noise in the industry, we want to get out and state a clear position so that our users understand that we take privacy very seriously,” MySpace co-president Mike Jones told The Wall Street Journal.
Some say MySpace has nothing to lose here, and should have been even more aggressive in taking advantage of the media and public backlash around Facebook’s increasingly confusing privacy settings.
MySpace works with agencies Weber Shandwick and Rubenstein Associates.
