MySpace and the Net-Gen

MySpace has taken off at an incredible pace. Fred Wilson posted some stats:

Here are the six web properties with the most pages viewed (remember ads run is mostly equal to pages viewed on the web):

Yahoo! – 43,700MM
Time Warner – 31,600MM (AOL is roughly 70% of this)
Microsoft – 21,800MM (MSN is part of this)
eBay – 10,900MM
MySpace – 9,600MM
Google – 6,300MM

And what’s even more amazing is that MySpace’s page views have grown 50% in the past three months.

I’m not sure what percentage of this growth is attributable to teenagers spending their evenings communicating on MySpace instead of watching TV. And I’m definitely at least a decade too old to ‘get it’. For example, here’s Brian who was featured today as one of the ‘cool new people’ on the MySpace home page:

People call me the Bry man; I’m the stylish one of the group. I know what you’re asking yourself and the answer is yes. I have a nick name for my penis. Its called the Octagon
