The popular social-networking site, which recently topped Yahoo Mail as the most-visited Web site in the United States, was disabled entirely as of 6:40 p.m. Pacific time Sunday.
The home page was replaced by a placeholder with a message from MySpace founder Tom Anderson, who said that the site was dealing with a power outage in its data center. He cited the time as 6:40 p.m. Pacific and estimated that MySpace would “hopefully” be back up within the hour. “Wanna place a bet?” Anderson quipped in the note.
As of about 6 a.m. Pacific on Monday, the site was back up.
I find these social networking sites rather useless and MySpace is probably the worst one of the bunch. For the record, I do actually have a MySpace page, which is useless and redundant, but it is at least readable.
