MySpace might have taken a licking, but it keeps on ticking, according to a revealing interview with the CEO published Wednesday.
MySpace CEO Tim Vanderhook told the Wall Street Journal that the site still draws 50 million visitors a month. That’s a massive 575% leap over last year’s traffic.
But even more intriguing is that MySpace gets a weekly surge of visitors every “Throwback Thursday”.
Vanderhook said that some of these nostalgia-seekers return to MySpace every Thursday to raid their image libraries like a dusty old attic before heading over to post them on Twitter or Instagram.
