My-space has become a dirty word lately thanks to many investigatory reports into the dark underbelly of the popular site. Most neglect to mention the potential that My-space has for musicians. From booking tours, finding like minded independent artists website, producers and supporters, My-space can be a gold mine if tapped properly.
The ease and simplicity of the site which makes it so appealing also creates a cesspool of spur of the moment pages that take much too long to wade through.
The first important aspect to check is the Last Login. If the person has not logged in for over a month then the odds are that they will not any time soon. No good contacted someone if they never check their page.
The next thing to check on a band page is if they have any shows listed. Another important legitimacy check is the band info on the page. If the group does not have a band website posted then something is wrong. Using a My-space page as the band webpage is extremely unprofessional and shows how serious the band is.
Slightly less important aspects to look for on a band My-space page include how the page itself is presents. An overlooked feature of the band My-space page is the friend page. Most think the more friends that a band has is an indicator to the true popularity and talent level of the group.
My-space is a great tool. A quick check of the page will help you determine if the artist would make a great contact.
