A blogger has declared Wednesday to be International Delete Your Myspace Account Day, and his campaign may be generating some steam. It’s getting some news coverage and a reaction from a MySpace spokeswoman. It’s doubtful, however, it’ll make a blip in MySpace’s 110 million active monthly users.
A Facebook page devoted to the event has 1,600 confirmed guests as of Tuesday morning.
Blogger Simon Owens, who started it all, say’s he’s fed up with MySpace for a number of reasons, some of which include spam friend requests, technical glitches, random marriage proposals, too many clicks to perform tasks, loud and obnoxious profiles, intrusive banner ads, MySpace-related hoaxes and incidents involving child predators.
Are any of your teens planning to delete their MySpace pages? Do you want them to? Are you planning to delete yours? (You do have a MySpace page, parents, don’t you? If you’re reading about the MySpace threats but not using the site yourself, it’s hard to understand which dangers are real and which are hype.)
