While it was once the social network of social networks, Myspace has since dwindled into what can only be described as a social network ghost town. Since the release of social networks like Facebook and Twitter, the Myspace user base has been gradually declining. After being purchased by Justin Timberlake and Specific Media in 2011, Myspace stayed afloat and somehow regained some users earlier this year.
In May, Myspace promised a complete relaunch by the end of 2012, and now it looks like we are finally getting it. Is it enough to raise the once booming social network from the grave? We'll let you decide.
So what's new about Myspace? As you can see from the video, the company stuck with its creative roots, offering users more freedom and page customization than Facebook along with a heavy emphasis on music, something Facebook always lacked. But the Myspace pages of 2012 will have a much more 'modern' (or should we say "Modern UI") look, with horizontal scrolling and tumblr-esque tiles.
While it's hard to say whether the new Myspace will be able to reach its former level of glory, we can definitely see how its more appealing as ever to musical aritsts. Head on over to https://new.myspace.com/ to see for yourself.
