The final Morning Tabs of the week includes Myspace collapsing, sales increasing, listeners YouTubing, and Steve Savoca Spotifying.
- People have been talking about the “death” of Myspace for years, but recent numbers suggest that rumors of the site’s demise may no longer be exaggerated. They lost 10 million users last month alone. (via @featuredartists)
- Those of you who follow album sales closely may have noticed this already, but recordings sales this week beat their 2010 equivalents for the fifth straight week. According to NARM President Jim Donio, this is the first time this has happened since 2004.
- Nielsen recently published the last of three white papers it produced exclusively for MIDEM last month. Over 26,000 people spread out across the world were asked about their music buying and consumption habits. Sample fact: people YouTube three times as much music as they buy.

- Former head of digital at Domino, current friend of WAMM and eternal all-around ass-kicker Steve Savoca is heading to Spotify. Will Steve oversee the people who take these jobs? Only time will tell.
