a Myspace webmail client?

Posted in social network by paulie on August 11, 2009

Why? Because Rupert can! Myspace can capitalize upon it’s billion user base and stable of advertisers and celebs to make it pay off even if no one is excited about it.

Who would you guess is the current webmail leader? I was surprised to learn Yahoo is in the number one spot.

For me the niche appeal of webmail is the continuity it offers it’s users. Young teens open an account for their covert communication and stay on because they accumulate an archive and book of contacts. Latter-day webmail offers almost unlimited space so the value of the archive keeps growing forever. The account serves them through young adulthood as ISP’s come and go with changes in their living situation.

Personally I am turned off by freemail with ads and I treat it and it’s users coldly. If you want to email me choose Google webmail. It has no ads.
