Anyone know what happened on MySpace on March 31 to cause this big jump in MySpace video traffic?

I agree with this blogger- they must have posted something or changed the way they promote video content from within the site. But what?

They sent out an e-mail promotion that started like this:

"Hey MySpacers!

Have you been having fun with our new Film and Video sections?

I've been searching up funny stuff to send to my friends, like this hamster eating a cookie :)

My friend forwarded me a video of "MySpace - The Movie" on March 29th.......
The video is on YouTube......but maybe related somehow?

I'm not sure of the date, but they added a "view my videos" link next to the "view my pics" link onto profile pages recently... even if you don't have any video there.

MySpace the movie got a bucketload of views in its first week or so on the internet. From memory, there was a newspaper article in a LA newspaper around the end of march ( i think) about the director and him being discovered by MTV. Maybe that is cause?
