Charlie Rose: The MySpace Interview
February 04, 2009 at 14:35 PM EST
MySpace founders Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe got the Charlie Rose treatment on Tuesday night in a wide-ranging interview that lasted about a half hour. Rose starts with a few general questions, but he does get a few tidbits of new information. For instance, DeWolfe reveals that 18 million people a month get MySpace on their mobile phones. To put that into perspective, that is about the same size as the worldwide audience for the NYTimes.com (comScore). DeWolfe also claims: We have the biggest library of professional videos in the world. Rose even refers to a TechCrunch post to ask whether Facebook will one day surpass MySpace in the U.S. (it already has worldwide). DeWolfe says, "no." And what does Anderson think of Facebook? He calls it an "address book." He also comes to the defense of Yahoo, believe it or not. (Full video and transcript after the jump).
