There is an Internet battle going on that may effect the future of Apple’s iTunes. The world’s two biggest social networking sites are slugging it out for your loyalty. Its Facebook Vs MySpace and the financial stakes are high. MySpace, the older of the sites practically invented the concept of networking on the Internet, but suffers from bad PR in many circles. The latest statistics on use reveal much about their battle. Facebook, the industry’s newcomer has actually overtaken MySpace in visitors…Facebook gets 120 million “unique” visitors everyday, MySpace 115 million unique visitors. These numbers are truly astounding. Being number two doesn’t sit well with MySpace, so they’ve taken action. The site recently launched a new weapon…music. Check this out…A MySpace member can now listen to “free” streaming music on the site. Members can even make play lists of up to 100 songs…but how does this threaten iTunes? Well, not only does MySpace allow you to listen, but with one click of the mouse the site directs you to amazon.com’s digital music store …and yes, you can purchase the song there. Should Apple be worried?…time will tell.
