What social site is mysp short for?


Myspace is a social networking website that people sometimes abbreviate as "mysp" online. For example, you may message someone to check out photos or vids you posted on your mysp page or a bop you found on a new artist's mysp page.

Mysp was one of the first social media platforms. Chris DeWolfe, Tom Anderson, and Jon Hart founded and launched the site in 2003, which exploded in popularity in the mid-2000s. In its early days, users carefully curated their mysp page with information about themselves, pictures, songs, and their "Top 8" friends.

However, as its popularity waned in the late-2000s and early-2010s and it hemorrhaged users to Facebook, the site morphed into a social platform emphasizing creative artists, particularly musicians. Regular users are still welcome, but they are now joined by many other artists, such as musicians, photographers, writers, filmmakers, actors, DJs, and designers.
