This will work well if you have an active or popular MySpace page where your friends are regularly posting and following your updates. Especially if the have subscribed to your “Activity Stream” which is pre-checked when visitors use the“Add To Friends” button. It is also a good to link your main web site posts or provides links back to your site.
The main downside to MySpace is those annoying warning signs when you click on a link with a destination outside of  MySpace domain.
