Where are all the models?

Back in the early days of social networking, I started a Yahoo! Club (later called Yahoo! Group) to bring together fans, models and photographers. I’ve been out of business for almost 4 years and it is funny to see how the online landscape for asian models has changed. Most of the Yahoo Groups are dead or nothing more than a commercial outlet for spammers. All models have their own website nowadays with a paid membersection. But where do they meet there new online customers, uhhh fans, these days?Right, on myspace.com of course! I just started my own environment there and already have some friends. Lena Li and Sasha Singleton were among the first who accepted my invitation. It’s amazing how many models are hanging around there. I even noticed Lisa Boyle is still doing her thing!

Anyone here who has his or her own space at myspace.com?

  1. Judging from the photos of Lena Li’s ‘friends’, it seems you have to be a dorky-looking wanker to post there! 🙂 Still, at least one of her friends is an absolute honey:

    Unfortunately her blog text is so painfully small I can’t be bothered reading it, but that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the pics!

  2. It’s a crazy place but damn, what a lot of members. More than 20 million people already signed up and it seems that myspace.com has more visitors than friendster, orkut and other social networks together.

    It’s the place to be for younger people between 18 and 35 years they told me.

  3. Found another honey amongst Lena Li’s ‘friends’:

    What a shame she’s playing for the other team! 🙁

    BTW, am I the only one who’s surprised by the number of meatheads (or people pretending to be meatheads) at MySpace? Perhaps the ultimate proof that body building doesn’t guarantee a social life! 🙂

  4. Here’s an interesting article about the surprising success of MySpace. It still amazes me how such an appllingly designed site can be so successsful – I guess it’s more proof of the succes of the Microsoft approach: never mind the quality, feel the width!
