Barbara Walters is now on Myspace but as of now she doesn’t have any friends besides Tom and Chris DeWolf who both work for Myspace. She really wants some friends and said it will be depressing if none of the hundred some million Myspacers reach out to her. Her exact words….
“I am now on MySpace,” the broadcast veteran, 78, told her View co-producer Bill Geddie on Barbara Live, her weekly Sirius radio show.
“What would bother me is if nobody got in touch with me,” she admited. “What if … nobody wanted to be my friend. I would be very depressed.”
Checking the computer to see just how many friends she actually does have on her MySpace page, Geddie was forced to inform Walters she has only two: MySpace founders Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson.
“Nobody else wanted to be my friend?” said a disappointed Walters. “Nobody I went to high school with? … Nobody wanted to get in touch with me?“
Her sorrowful response prompted Geddie to offer a plea to listeners.
“If you’re out there on MySpace, become a friend with Barbara Walters because it’s so depressing to look at this,” he said. “Really – just go on, say you love her or something, I watch The View all the time – something like that.”
Said Walters, with tongue planted firmly in cheek , “And that’s for real that nobody wants to be my friend? What have I done?“

GigaOm is reporting that not only is Alicia Keys Myspace’s 4th most popular major musical artist but that she is also hack bait! What that means is that her Myspace page has continuously been hacked into. And visiting her page could make you susceptible to whatever kind of computer STD that her page obviously has. (Yall better stop programing without protection)

Meet Ashley Qualls the young 17yr old millionaire entrepreneur that started whateverlife.com, a site that young women can go to in order to decorate their myspace pages with pretty flowers, hearts, celebrities and more.
At 17 going on 37 (at least), Ashley is very much an Internet professional. In the less than two years since Whateverlife took off, she has dropped out of high school, bought a house, helped launch artists such as Lily Allen, and rejected offers to buy her young company. Although Ashley was flattered to be offered $1.5 million and a car of her choice–as long as the price tag wasn’t more than $100,000–she responded, in effect, Whatever. “I don’t even have my license yet,” she says.
Ashley is evidence of the meritocracy on the Internet that allows even companies run by neophyte entrepreneurs to compete, regardless of funding, location, size, or experience–and she’s a reminder that ingenuity is ageless. She has taken in more than $1 million, thanks to a now-familiar Web-friendly business model. Her MySpace page layouts are available for the bargain price of…nothing. They’re free for the taking. Her only significant source of revenue so far is advertising. To find out how she passed Oprah Winfrey – Yes we said it Oprah Winfrey! Read the rest of this entry »
