This post got me thinking about a possible myspace magazine that was mentioned in an Adage article. I’ve certainly bashed myspace before, but this might not turn out to be a bashing because a print edition of myspace just might work. It begs the question- will you read a myspace magazine if they come out with one?
The more I think about this, the more I think…it could very well be a hit with myspace users. The adage article mentions that “The editorial mix would likely cover standout MySpace members and their interests, from music to their social scenes.” I see the potential to get users even more engaged than they already are if there was the opportunity to become famous for doing so. The only downside I see is having it turn into something similar to all the crappy tabloids out there that just dig up the latest dirt on celebrities. I’m not endorsing this idea, but I’m kind of surprised there hasn’t been a magazine that digs up dirt on myspace members and publishes it for newsstands.
Afterall, even though most of the content of Business 2.0, Fortune, and Entrepreneur is all available online, I still choose to subscribe to the magazines because I prefer reading them on paper rather than spend even more time on my computer. I spend enough time on the computer as it is. Myspace on paper? I can see numerous possibilities…do you?
