Music fans prefer Wikipedia to MySpace

Music fans prefer Wikipedia to MySpace - Social networking sites like MySpace would be likely candidates for being the most popular sites to turn to for information about bands, but results from Yahoo show that Wikipedia is preferred by a ratio of more than two-to-one. This is in spite of the fact that the "tens of thousands" of Wikipedia band entries pale in comparison with the millions of MySpace entries. Wikipedia's advantage lies in the fact that it's "so clear, so concise, and it's standardized", and is not promotional.
