myspace?

myspace?

Surprisingly it appears this product does not support "Myspace". If so and before I try it, is there any plan to include Myspace buttons etc in the near future?

I know this is only cheap at the moment but I am wary and was burnt with a WA HTML Editor registration I cannot install. Myspace seems to be a glaring omission so please advise.

Regards.

Myspace have changed their policy recently and they moved a way from being a social media which is why we did not include it. We will look into it in the future and see if it makes sense to add it to our extension.

When was the last time you visited MySpace?!

Try this:

Notice all links to other social media on top (A clear case of WA Social Media Tool kit missing!). I hope everybody can make their OWN choice when it comes to the selection of different social media and I just find it strange that that choice is already made with arguments I don't share.
It makes it more complicated when you can insert a couple of icons and still have to add ones that are not in the collection of the extension.

Neilo I listened to your advice and added a topic to the wish list!

Hi David,

Nice one, - and thanks for the link.

I suppose that at some point, there has to be a judgment call as to which social network sites are included in the list for selection, otherwise you would have approximately 334 icons to try to fit into the list, and 334 bits of code programmed to be added to your page if selected. I'm not sure how that would reflect on the cost of the extension, though.

I don't deny that MySpace is still a top player in the US where it is still the largest 'social network' unit (although I feel compelled to add single quotes to 'social network' in their case) but I really can't see it being around for too much longer, at least under the guise of being a 'social networking' site. News Corp is desperately trying to off-load it (no one will touch it) despite a few re-builds to try to breathe new life in to it. In Europe and the rest of the non-US world it is dying a slow and pitiful death. It may continue as a resource for musicians' band/fan pages (especially if a buyer were to rebuild/rebrand it specifically for that purpose), i.e. - for bands like The Chemical Brothers who don't actually have their own website, but I personally find the pages currently to be tedious, messy and aesthetically repellant*.

For people who want access to all possible options, there is always Add This. But I expect WA might add MySpace if enough people ask for it.

* An entirely subjective personal opinion, possibly shared only by the most marginal minority of the grossly bigoted and opinionated.
