Delaware County (Pa.) Times partying like it's 2005

    Most of us laugh at cookie-cutter newspaper websites, but the Delaware County Times takes the cake with a "Share" button for MySpace. Does the web manager know MySpace is not where the cool kids go?

    I noticed this story, which is horrible because a 13-year-old boy was robbed at gunpoint for his meatball sub.

  2. You forgot to point out there's also a Facebook recommend button and some sort of Twitter newsfeed, so the site is far from ancient. And if you're going to include some social media functions, why not just include a Myspace share button? It's not that no one uses Myspace, it's that fewer people do. I still see a lot of news sites with Digg buttons, which I would wager has a far smaller user base than Myspace.

    Your point is a good one, though Digg and MySpace are very close these days according to Alexa.com. Twitter didn't actually pass MySpace until late 2009.
