Myspace Brings Sexy Back With New Look

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 to see for yourself.

    Just how many social networks do we need? I think I'll pass. FB is a waste of time already. I thought MySpace was pretty much dead and gone already. No thanks.

    Myspace won't steal back facebook users but intact will be the second place users will go that facebook is lacking. Myspace will be big again but not like facebook. Myspace will be full of music and apps. If there smart they will offer something like facebook+itunes combined. Think about it almost every young person likes to play music and most want to make MONEY making their own music. Imagine if you sold your own music for 99 cents and myspace gets a certain percentage and if you are spotted on myspace you can be "drafted" by a music company.

    This actually looks like a solid effort to overhaul the cast iron boat. I use social media and Facebook sites as little as I possibly can. My biggest FB complaint is they've done so many things that are a like it or too bad approach. Facebook lost what made Facebook what it is/was awhile ago. Maybe it was the "new" flair it had about it, or that at one point it seemed to be really useful tool. Whether the Myspace revamp works or not remains to be seen, but it definitely looks like solid effort and improvement.

    Somone should just release a social network that's similar to Trillian for IM's. Combine twitter, youtube, g+, facebook, myspace, reddit all into one. I think the FBI/NSA might already have it, but they could make bank if they could sell it to the public.
  • Pinterest, blogsynergy, medium, instagram, google plus ..... . Enough social. We need other innovations too.
