MySpace is one of the most popular social networks on the internet with over 100 million users and a rank of 6th place on Alexa.com. Because of the ability to greatly customize profile pages many sites have been produced to help MySpace users create custom pages with graphics, name generators, photo album scrollers and many more widgets.
I am going to concentrate on one particular widget in this article and that is the countdown clock widget.
A countdown clock widget allows you to countdown to a certain day, for example Christmas day is on the 25th of December, so you would go into that date in the countdown widget and the widget will then characterize a count down in days, hours, minutes and seconds till the 25th of December. There are a number of different types of countdown widget obtainable including birthday, wedding, vacation, public holidays and many more. The most popular countdown timer widget at the time of writing this article is the Pregnancy countdown timer with over 3000 searches a day. Pregnancy countdown timers are used to countdown to the date your baby is due and work just like any other countdown timer.
To look for countdown clocks for your MySpace profile go to Google and search for MySpace countdown timers, there will be many to choose from with different designs, text fonts, animations, colors and sizes, when you have found one that best matches your profile layout go into the widget code in the section you would like to place the widget.
Another great characterize of MySpace is the music sharing facility, this enables you to search for a band on MySpace and then select a song to add to your profile page, when a visitor looks at your profile the song will play in the background automatically if it is set to do so in the options of your profile.
Bands can also set up profiles for there band and upload there music in mp3 format for users to add to there profile, this is a great way of getting your band noticed.
