Just Keep Waiting It Out: MySpace Music Still Down

  • Save

Critical portions of MySpace Music remained down on Wednesday, and well into Thursday in Europe.

The issue affects playlisting and personal collection pages, the heart of the newly-revamped destination.  The issue now appears to be stretching beyond 48 hours, a gaping time window.  “We are making some minor changes to this section so please bear with us until we can get it back online,” a brief message from Tom stated.

A MySpace representative denied that a problem existed late Wednesday, though downed pages tell a different story.  MySpace Music recently reported on-demand streams of one billion during its first week, though it remains unclear whether the current situation will affect those volumes.  The reason is that MySpace was counting an ongoing flow of song requests from its massive collection of artist pages, a section that remains unaffected by the downtime.
