MySpace Video On Your Profile

Posted on: January 19, 2007

One of the most annoying things companies do is when they add features without warning.

Myspace ‘profiles’ are now showing an additional component/section(?) called ‘Video Space’ (located below the ‘Who I’d like to meet’ component and above the ‘Top Friends’ area) that just popped up by default across the network, if the users had uploaded any videos.

Until now, about the closest thing to this was that myspace would just ‘insert’ video clips right into your profile into the ‘about me’ section when you clicked a text link below a video you were watching. (kinda cavemanish imo) This is a much stronger move in that they are starting to catch up from where they WERE this summer (completely down for days) to actually leveraging a massive untapped resource (other people’s content) in order not to fall in the shadow of the big acquisition that just happened.

Most of us would have been thrilled to learn this was in the works, but I’m mildly annoyed to learn that the videos I’ve uploaded are all of a sudden appearing in my profile. I’ve already inserted them in my About Me section, to get around the fact that the site didn’t allow this in the first place, and now I have to go back and fix it.
