MySpace Still Pays $60,000 A Month For Parking & Other Stats From Company In Decline

image from www.google.com As NewsCorp reportedly moves closer to deal to unload MySpace - or at least partner with someone to try to rebuild it - a variety of stats about the struggling social network are leaking. Some we knew, other are surprising and downright sad - particularly for a company that is losing money despite massive layoffs and supposed cost cutting measures. The surprising MySpace stats:

  • News Corp paid $580 million for MySpace in 2005
  • Offers to buy are under $100 million
  • MySpace still pays $60,000 a month for parking
  • MySpace still pays $800,000 a month in legal fees
  • The site had 7.1 million unique U.S. visitors in April
  • That's down 46% from the same period last year
  • Traffic is down from 70.9 million in April 2009, according to comScore. 
  • The News Corp digital division that includes Myspace reported an operating loss of $165 million in the last quarter.
