What? A New MySpace? Here’s A Sneak Peek

No, you aren’t reading this headline incorrectly, the good folks over at MySpace have decided it was time to release a brand new version of the service. It is being build completely from scratch and from the ground up is designed to be a great next-generation social platform that is only around six years too late. Oh well, I guess the people over there had to do something however luring users away from Facebook is going to be hard and I’m not quite sure MySpace is up for the fight again.

If you are one of the three people on this planet that are excited about MySpace’s brand new platform then this video below will blow your mind. If you’re one of the 99.99999% of the people on the planet who could care less this video will take time away from your life that you will never get back. Either way here’s a sneak peek of the new version of MySpace…drumroll please!

    Morgan,

    This post is uncharacteristically and unnecessarily cynical. Shame on you bro.
    We all know about the history and many phases of MySpace and it’s ultimate demise in the face of more successful social networks, but let’s not forget that at one time or another it was the predecessor of Facebook et al.

    At least the dudes over there are continuing to “pivot” and “iterate” which are both buzzwords you like to throw around these days. ; )

    You don’t use MySpace, I don’t use MySpace, but give them a break, eh?

      @Owen – not trying to be overly cynical…but I am trying to be realistic 🙂

    Looks like a mix of facebook, twitter and pinterest. But good, too bad it’s not 2005.

    That song is amazing. I’m visiting that post only to hear it.

    From the other side, I’m pleasantly surprised that MySpace have worked to show up with something new.

    Wow… The UI is very clean, and very very modern. Almost a direct decedent of Windows Metro. I’m glad to see they are trying to modernize the UI and it’s features, but how realistic is a venture involving the resurrection of a dead social media space? MySpace is used by whom? If they manage to pull old users back, I think this new UI could be a great start, but because the UI is so unique in comparison with FaceBook and Google+, how will users react to having to learn a new interface? Out of all three, Facebook will start to appear as the outdated social hub. Excessive advertisements, ridiculous amounts of Apps and games, and a very linear workflow, the users might choose to flock to the new(old) kid on the block. The UI is refreshing and should help to revitalize their brand. Let’s see where they take. Great find Morgan.
