Struggling to keep its traffic up, MySpace recently launched a job search called MySpace Careers. Problem is, as the New York Times reported yesterday, MySpace profiles ruin job prospects.

But blogger Eran Globen (who explains who WOULD want to hire MySpacers) told me, "Now MySpace can double their traffic."

Imitating the Fakesters of yore, MySpace should promote safe-for-work dummy profiles.

How else does a social network grow when everyone's already joined? It tells people with bling-blinging ghetto profiles to make squeaky clean profiles.

And it's easy to keep recruiters out of the loop — just protect the "dirty" profiles with an audio password, using that hot new kids-only ringtone.
