  • Myspace已遺失來自1400萬名藝人的5000萬首曲目




    ◎網路專家Andy Baio寫道「許多人現在指責People/Entertainment Network,他們在2016年從時代公司手上買下了MySpace。我嚴重懷疑這次的遺失是一次意外,公然明顯的無能可能會是很糟糕的公關,但它仍然聽起來比『我們才懶得為遷移及託管5000萬首MP3而努力和花錢』來得好。」


    Myspace has lost all content uploaded to the site before 2016 including more than 50 million tracks,videos and photos from 14 million artists. Users noticed that content was missing almost a year ago.

    MySpace was once the most important social network in the world and served as a vital conduit of fan communications for many musicians. Over time, however, most fans moved on to Facebook and other social networks.

    Now, MySpace has confirmed the new data loss, blaming a faulty migration to a new server. Retrieving the content is reportedly impossible. A sloppy relaunch in 2013 had already deleted much of the legacy text content, but retained music, photos and video.

    Many are now blaming the People/Entertainment Network, who purchased MySpace from Time Inc in 2016, for the loss. "I'm deeply skeptical this was an accident," wrote the internet expert Andy Baio. "Flagrant incompetence may be bad PR, but it still sounds better than, 'We can't be bothered with the effort and cost of migrating and hosting 50m old MP3s.'"
