Can MySpace -with a user basis completed 100 a million strong- be competitively in use as a marketing implement short fall in the rules?

Quite straightforwardly....? NO.

Even the highly theory of mercantilism near MySpace is hazardously stick down to violating the MySpace Terms of Use Agreement. Section 8, written material 2, constituent 2 patently prohibits "advertising to, or solicitation of, any Member to buy or get rid of any products or services finished the MySpace Services".

However, the expression does go off you whatsoever wiggle legroom. You don't have to in truth denote your products or work on your MySpace profile. You can, instead, link your MySpace profile to your website hype your products and services and consequently purely category of... *ahem*... plug your site (heavily) on MySpace. Right?

Of course, the notion that MySpace was not designed to be utilised for subject matter purposes doesn't grip untold hose anyway when you purloin into anticipation that MySpace is widely notable as a conveyance to publicize bands. So next the give somebody the third degree arises, if Joe Guitar and the Gray Tones can use MySpace to publicity their decoration (and finally supply CDs) why can't I use MySpace to put up for sale my bluish widgets?

But after these treble standards are single the tip of the ice mass. Beneath the seeming of MySpace subject matter accounts lurks a lusus naturae of footing of use violations, peak more than ever encompassing the dynamic of automating the adding together of friends to your MySpace friends inventory.

MySpace Whore Trains

It all began when MySpace assets sites started growing up all over and done with the net providing a system to make ginormous MySpace friends lists severely speedily via striking automatic scripts. These scripts ultimately became known as (*chuckle*) 'whore trains'.

This before long gave distant to the aptitude to compose your own cocotte trains by copy-and-pasting a ready-made tart public transport writing and causation it out via the MySpace report arrangement.

Of course, these services were all provided escaped of allege. No medium of exchange in that. It wasn't womb-to-tomb past being thought, "Hey! Why not provide a system of rules that does the aforesaid thing?"

And, convinced enough, on came MySpace somebody adder software system which you could in actual fact buy, invest on your data processor and use it from at hand to jam up your friends catalogue faster than you can say 'add me'.

But wait, that's not all.. You can now even unify affiliate programs and earn a commission when you bring forth income for these human adder programs.

As of this writing, if you do a survey in Google for "myspace tart train", you'll insight automated individual adder scripts as far as the eye can see.

And yet, astonishingly enough, all of the above quondam over again constitutes a brazen contravention of the MySpace Terms of Use Agreement. In luggage you didn't know, clause 8, writing 2, element 4 of the Terms of Use Agreement shockingly prohibits:

"any automatic use of the system, specified as mistreatment scripts to add friends or transport interpretation or messages;"

Ooops.... Uh-oh...

Selling MySpace on Ebay

Nevertheless, in malice of all this auto-friend-adding ram human being illegal, all gung ho MySpace marketer this side of Pluto is victimization many kind of sporting lady discipline or cohort adder system to mechanical device up their friends inventory. And they are doing it at the rate of 3500 per week! (MySpace reportedly imposes a daily colleague behest consideration of 500.)

So can one contend near all that without jumping on the bandwagon? Probably not.

And is it risky? Of instruction.

With relatives now creating MySpace profiles for the sole meaning of amassing tens of thousands of friends and past merchandising those profiles on eBay (I kid you not), the soon-to-be for name-calling is big. [And yes it is also explicitly against MySpace Terms of Use to go your chart (section 8, writing 2, cut 9)].

The nether string is MySpace will take away your profile if you lift the undamaged friend-adding, bulletin-spamming, profile-flipping entry too far. They may even apply a special device preventing you from mistreatment your website's field cross in any hyperlinks generated in the total MySpace association (which process all profiles, bulletins and messages). So a statement to the wise: Moderation is the key.

It's interesting to register nevertheless that MySpace is in all probability one of the single places on the net you can put up a post chronicle (let's facade it... that's what you're doing next to all that woman of the street steam engine business organization) short in truth having to lure users to opt-in by support both features of freebee in anterior of their noses.

However if you do get into this, be well-advised that copious MySpace users will permit your machine-controlled companion request near an programme of their own. For example, copious will in all probability a moment ago poorness to blow up their own friends listing for the interest of out-and-out selfishness and will never even stop by your MySpace page, your website or pay fame to any substance bulletins you convey out.

Still others can even be promoters like-minded yourself. This will compile a setting akin to a direct salesman beingness greeted by a glad woman of the house who forthwith launches into a sales tilt of her own.

All of this makes for a smaller amount than targeted post catalogue.

But hey... that's what you get when you suspension the rules. :o)
