View Full Version : The New MySpace Kind of Looks Cool...

So MySpace posted a video of what the new site will look like, and I am shocked to say that it looks pretty cool. See for yourself. (https://new.myspace.com/play)

I am getting bored of Facebook, so I might give this a shot. Perhaps it can wrestle some people back. What do you all think?

This actually looks like a really smart relaunch. The design seems very Windows 8, which could be good or bad depending on how well it actually feels to the user and how they executed, but mostly I'm impressed with the incorporating a music player right there as a toolbar. Myspace's only real advantage over Facebook is that has such strong connections to the music industry and still remains a somewhat go-to source for bands to have pages advertising their shit. Their artist pages are still way more useful than Facebook's. Incorporating an easy to use constantly visible music bar might actually be a good lure to start pulling people from Facebook especially now that Facebook is starting to crest past the popularity bubble all social networks face.

you mean I no longer have to look at a decade old page that gives me a headache when a band feels that myspace is the only kind of page they need on the internet?

Thank fuck. Taking a photo of each latte I drink was getting really lonely without a satisfactory venue for distribution.

Looks cool, but I'm going to have to deactivate my fb profile. It's becoming too much.

That's a fucking retarded argument, Erik. Myspace was shitty because it lacked consistency between pages and a useful interface. It's not polish, it's functionality that dictates whether these are worthwhile.

Looks interesting but I still wish they kept the old format where you can work on the HTML and build your own page. I spent so much time updating mine and now most of that HTML is overwritten to make the page look like every other one. :-(

... the HTML freedom is exactly why the site died in the first place, you dizzy bitch.

I know, people are too simple for that freedom.

If you wanna design HTML, build your own fucking website. It has no place on a place for people to be joined together where there are significant security risks.

Where have you been Rocke?

Hey there! Between a new job and moving this summer, plus busy workdays and evenings, I haven't been visiting as often. When I am on, I have been in stealth mode. I am hoping to ramp up participation again.

Do you have to sign up again if you already have an account. Also, does this kill google +, or is that still gonna hang out a while?

Google+ is permanently linked at google.com - the most visited page on the internet. It won't be going away anytime soon.

It's also a pretty damn good site in my opinion.

Sorry for the double post, but for anyone that wants a New Myspace Beta invite please PM me your email addy. I work for Myspace / Specific Media and would love to get feedback from discerning music fans such as yourselves.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Here's my profile page:

Sorry for not seeing this thread earlier, I did search before I started my own. Does anyone know if I can keep my old profile on the new MySpace?

Can I still creep on underage girls on Myspace or did that change? That was the only thing it was good for.

kroqken

It was good for discovering new bands. Underage girls (or anyone else underage) should have their page automatically private and not be able to receive messages or friends requests from those 18 or over.

I am not interested in anyone underage, so it does not matter what myspace does to their pages as I do not look at those type of pages anyway.
