MySpace Doesn’t Work on Google Chrome

With the increasingly easy functionality of Google’s Chrome web browser it is becoming a very popular tool on most computers for internet usage. I’ve currently been using Chrome as my main internet browser but have had some problems with certain site’s layouts. Chrome’s intricate code restrictions have been leaving some site’s buttons covered by photots or videos that would have normally laid out in a different area on the page.

Now I understand if someone running a blog out of their home, doing their own coding, with very little background on the development process wouldn’t really be too concerned with an issue like this. Recently I have been going through all of our artists on our Music Without Labels site and going through all their content which in most cases happens to be MySpace. Using Chrome, I’ve come to realize that MySpace is one of these sites being restricted by a faulty code that Google’s browser refuses to accept, causing the header photo of each band to cover their music player. Now wait a minute!!! You would think by now a company like MySpace would have figured this out.

Myspace: Still No Moves

According to TechCrunch Europe, Myspace visits have declined 50% over the past 6 months from 10 million to 5 million. Now they are laying off workers in their London office. Obviously everyone who isn’t using MySpace saw this coming. I mean, come on here.

I’ve just been recently been looking at our Music Without Labels artist’s music and most of them are still using Myspace. A few months ago we had a post on The Music Lab Blog relating to MySpace’s current flaws in their site. One of the main things that was holding them down and is today, was the fact that they allow HTML to be added to the comments on artists pages. This means as fan or artist, you can post comments with videos or songs on them that play automatically when the page loads. So it’s a complete turn off for a fan to go onto your Artist Profile and here someone else’s music playing over top of or before they can select one of your songs.

It is things like these that have been complained about for the past year, and they are still wasting their time on buying other companies to save their ass. Here’s an idea. Listen to the people who use your site and give you the numbers to stay alive. That is the start to having a successful business. Stop looking for a savior and focus on your site and the people you surprisingly still have.
