Coyotes on MySpace

Phoenix Coyotes Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Michael Bucek announced today that the Coyotes have launched their very own MySpace page. The Coyotes Official MySpace page will allow fans to communicate directly with the club as well as with other Coyotes fans across the country.

"The launch of the Coyotes Official MySpace page is just one part of our commitment to offer fans increased access across multiple interactive platforms,” said Bucek. “Social networking websites are the online starting point for our current and future fans in the younger demographic, so we felt it was extremely important to have a presence in that space.”

You can see the site here, and it's a perfect fit for the attention deficit generation. I think even I'm too old for this one.

MySpace. It's so "two years ago". I thought the Facebook was the way to go.

Can't keep up with the kids these days.

MySpace = middle school and high school kids

Facebook = college kids and young adults. Or older adults that still think they've got 'it'.

MySpace is still more popular in the US than Facebook. In Canada, it's Facebook over MySpace.

Today's teenagers are tomorrow's ticket buyers. Call this move a delayed-gratification marketing stroke of genius.

I'm still getting used to WorldWideWeb. The one Al Gore greated.

I created a myspace page for a local boxing event here, my first myspace page:


There are a number of fans, magazines, athletes, and even performers still using myspace. And besides the bizarre design restrictions, I kind of like myspace a little better than facebook (but less than flickr).

Too many requests and invitations with facebook.

If I could remember my Myspace password I'd totally friend the Coyotes.

They need a good friend. :(

Facebook's extensibility platform virtually assures that it will win in the long run over MySpace. The capabilities are expanding at a phenomenal pace and it has the potential to become the uber-portal for just about anything related to social interaction, including voice services.

Google's Orkut has momentum in other geographies, though, and if they ever get their act together, they could still emerge as a major player.

I used to be with "it." But then they changed what "it" was. Now what I'm with isn't "it" and what's "it" is weird and scary.
