About Chris DeWolfe:
Chris DeWolfe is an American entrepreneur, and one of the creators of Myspace (along with Tom Anderson), of which he is also the former CEO. He has the sixth account ever made on the site. During DeWolfe's tenure, MySpace became the top social network, with over 135 million worldwide unique visitors a month. Under DeWolfe, music became a defining feature of MySpace, which was credited with challenging and reinventing the music label industry with the MySpace Music section, which allowed unsigned artists to post their music for free and launched the careers of several famous musicians, among them Lily Allen and Sean Kingston. Currently, DeWolfe is the CEO of Social Gaming Network (SGN).
