Just a quick survey as I'm not very good at myspace - how often do you do the following:
1) Add people you don't know at random.
2) Add people you don't know whose music tastes suggest they might like you.
3) Leave a 'thanks for the add' style message when people add you.
4) Bulletin your shows/new recordings.
5) Contact promoters to ask for shows.
Please also add how many friends you have so that I can see if it's been effective or worthwhile. For fun!
