Myspace has over 123 million people with profiles, so I wonder how rich he actually is. I would say that he should be a billionaire with all the traffic that the website recieves and such. He is a genius.

He must be rich, because he sold the site to News Corp, the same megacompany that owns Fox News, Fox TV, newspapers around the world, etc. And he's still working for Myspace and collecting a salary, and I would assume getting some share of the profits in addition to his salary. I'd say he's doing quite well, financially.

I saw he sold mspace for something like $3 million, which is ridiculously cheap... He is their top advisor for it though and continues to make some type of money through his afiliation with it!

Tom sold myspace for around 500 Million. So, it really doesn't matter how many friends he has. He still helps to run it, however. I don't know about you guys...but I deleted him from my friends the moment I signed up for myspace.

He actually doesn't own it anymore. But he's still in control of it. I bet he has a HUGE bank roll. And he deserves it. I love it that he made that site.

One hell of alot after he sold myspace to the owner of the Fox news network. Thats why all those news reports have poped up about the evils of myspace.

That dude has GOT to be loaded. I have a feeling most of the announcements he supposedly puts up there aren't his actual words either. He is probably sitting back and raking the dough in by now.

Its funny because I accidently erased him from "my friends" because I really didn't know who he was! Then a few weeks later he appeared back on the list! He jsut looks like an ordinary guy!
