The Webby awards are delighted to honor MySpace.com and its fonders Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson as The Webby Breakout of the Year for 2006. This award was established to recognize as innovative new site or experience that has meaningfully altered the future of the Internet. With over 46 million unique pages, MySpace has quickly become one of the most successful social networking sites on the planet allowing friends to talk online; fostering families to keep in touch digitally; and providing long lost friends the means to rediscovery. It is not only an indispensable online tool for working musicians but has also facilitated an unprecedented exchange of information like user profiles, photos, bulletins and journals, changing the way the entire world communicates over the Internet.
