MySpace CEO Interview: 'There is No Point To Compete with Facebook and Twitter'

Will the site go beyond being a place just for music artists to connect with fans?
Tim: It's for all artists. We think there is an opportunity for all artists, whether you are a filmmaker, producer or a recording artist. We think the idea to create something unique and drive a connection with a fan base has a lot of equity.

Do you have a plan for apps?
Chris: We connected and built the design to live across different devices. You will definitely see those offerings from us.

You sure you don't want to tell me when the site will launch to the public that has been signing up for invites?
Chris: There are consumers we are thinking of opening it up to. There are 5 million artists who use the platform and we need to make sure we serve them well. After we go through that, we will go right to consumers. I believe consumers who are making the requests will be on in due time.

Before the end of the year?
Tim: Yes, before the end of the year.
