Myspace VS WAT Episode 5

Last month i was thinking that myspace could reach 2M UV in January and it seems that it was not so realistic as it "only" gain + 191 000 UV vs December. Skyblog growth is continuous (i don't understand really that point but it demonstrates that the life cycle is not 2-3 trendy years)

Yahoo! 360's vertiginous fall (- 50% in 2 months) has ended, it regains 91 000 UV (+ 40%)... WAT's growth is slowing down with + 113 000 UV as the marketing budget for january should have been reduced versus december... This site is not engaging its users, retention is very low for that kind of site and was yet lower in january than in december. It's not social it's just yet another Yahoo! music property...
One fondator of Amiz.fr contacted me to present me his site, so i've integrated it to this analysis cause the related datas are back in NNR.

. Myspace FR: 1, 691 Millions of UV (+191 000 UV MoM only)

> SEM, Banners campaigns...)
