Bulletins are posts that are posted on to a “bulletin board” for everyone on a MySpace user’s friends list to see. Bulletins can be useful for contacting an entire friends list without resorting to messaging each friend individually.
MySpace has a Groups feature which allows a group of users to share a common page and message board. Groups can be created by anybody, And the moderator of the group can choose for anyone to join, or to approve or deny requests to join.
In Early 2006, MySpace introduced MySpace IM, an instant messenger that uses one’s MySpace account as a screen name. Users who use MySpace IM get instant notification of new MySpace messages, friend requests, and comments.
In early 2007, MySpace introduced MySpace TV, a service similar to the YouTube video sharing website. MySpace TV is now in beta mode, and will probably be launched as a separate site in 2010. MySpace TV might be a standard channel that will be shown on television.
There are a variety of environments in which users can access MySpace contents on their mobile phones. American mobile phones provider Helio released a series of mobile phones in early 2006 that can utilize a service known as MySpace Mobile to access and edit one’s profile and communicate with, and view the profile of other members. Additionally, UIEvolution and MySpace developed a mobile version of MySpace for a wider range of carriers, including AT&T, Vodafone and Rogers Wireless.
