Organizations who are somehow related to music are in my opinion free to
use Myspace for marketing.
Because of it´s nature of communicativeness it could be a good channel for
companies to advertise there in communicative way.
Creating a own account for company could be a place where people are
able to share their thoughts about the company and connect with it in
innovative way, in Myspace`s style.
As accounts are totally customizable from head to the toe; cover photos,
connects and basically everything are changeable, can companies create
one account in their own unique style.
Companies could also have more rights for customization of profile.
