When did Myspace die? Or start to fade?

The reason I ask is that I watch The Steve Wilkos Show every night and they only show episodes from 2009-2010. A lot of the people talk about Myspace. Was it really that active during that time? I thought it died out around 2007 ish?
Update: @ johnny, I didn't ask why. I asked WHEN.
