Whatever Happened To Tom From Myspace?
You remember Tom, the smiling face from Myspace who was everyone’s friend. Thomas “Tom” Anderson is a US internet entrepreneur. He co-founded the social networking website Myspace in 2003 and was later president of Myspace and a strategic adviser for the company until he left in 2009. Because newly-created Myspace accounts initially included Tom as a default “friend”, his face became known as the default picture of Myspace, and he is often referred to as “Tom from Myspace” or “Myspace Tom”.
So……what is he doing now?
Anderson is active on other social networks, including Facebook, Twitter (with nearly 200,000 followers in December 2012), and Google+ (ranking 10th by number of followers in December 2011). He is also a real estate invenstor. Check out the photo of a tweet where he “Zinged” a critic. I understand this critic deleted his account after this event.
Anderson had a cameo appearance in the 2009 American drama-comedy film Funny People starring Adam Sandler.
In late May 2012, Anderson announced that he would be joining RocketFrog Interactive as an adviser to the 16-person, Los Angeles based company. RocketFrog has created a Facebook app that allows users to play poker, blackjack and a variety of other games with friends, and win prizes such as movie tickets, music, food and other real items from participating advertisers.
