    whatever works best for you …

    My facebook fan-page has 6000 fans (2000 perverts were blocked).
    My website has quite a few unique vs non-unique visitors.

    My myspace profile I don’t use because of the phishing-malware virus that infiltrated it in 2007 to move me going to facebook.

    My LinkedIn profile in collaboration with my email system is perfect for business-related communication.

    BBM and whatsapp : I don’t do business on as last time I gave my BBM-pin in my fan-page of 6000, I had 2000 people pinging me at odd times of the day…

So sometimes you have to figure it out along the way (like you did with MySpace) and the nice things about online/social media is the ability to pull the plug on a campaign when it’s not pulling in the right KPI results or for most, new business or opportunities (over the long run of course). Thanks for your candid comment!
