My Edelman colleague Marilynn Mobley sent over some staggering statistics about MySpace.

They got my head spinning considering this site was hardly on any of our radar screens a year ago.

It is the largest online social networking portal on the web

It has 61 + million registered users with 21+ million unique visitors (media metrix)

It’s the second largest destination on the web, by page views

It splits 50.2% male, 49.8% female

They reach more men online than ESPN.com. They reach more females online than iVillage.

The primary age demo is 16-34

They have 1.4 million registered bands, 350,000 band blogs

The site attracts 220,000 new registrants daily

There are 50,000 groups including fashion, health, wellness & fitness, sports and recreation, music, film, TV, etc.

And last but not least it costs $35,000 to launch a profile for marketing purposes.
