Wal-Mart Tries to Be MySpace. Seriously.

Advertising Age discusses how Wal-Mart is trying to be MySpace with their new Hub site. Of course, they want to control content, tell users what is and isn’t relevant to them, and add inauthentic marketing (“I’ll [look] hot in my Wal-Mart clothes…to catch a cute boy’s eye.”) Somehow, someone convinced Wal-Mart that this is the way they can compete with Target for the youth demographic. How about you clean up your stores, start stocking items that value good design, and just once don’t make me stand in line for 20 minutes to buy something?
