    Anyone seen the new myspace?

    I wouldnt have thought it could be saved, and I guess it couldnt have been saved in its old style and model. IMO JT has done an excellent job at making the site relevant again. To me it looks a little like tumblr or instagram style for audio with a nice new windows 8 style front end.

    I guess what excites me the most is the music sharing and connecting... opened up a lot of new ideas for marketing.

    What do you guys think?

    yea they said they decided not to import contacts from the old sit and that instead you couldd use "classic" myspace which will remaun for some undetermined amount of time but if they dont change thier decision i don't think it will be good ffor them to make everyone start over making connections

    i have it, and as an artist it's pretty tough to market your music. there is another band that has the exact same name that i have and their music gets mixed in with mine. i've had the name for years and even have the vanity url for the old myspace. oh well.

    That's horrible. I've checked out the new Myspace. I'm feeling the side scroll which is great for tablets. Unfortunately, you don't hold on to your originals accounts friends. Maybe because a good amount of people returning wouldn't remember their email / password to enter.

    Even though the layout has (supposedly) improved and it's functionally good, I don't think it will make a comeback.
    I say 'supposedly' because I only gave it a very cursory review. I remember not liking the music-player related updates that they've been putting out for the last few years.
    Myspace will not be the social media site to overtake Facebook. Even the association with the word is too 2006-ish in most people's eyes to even be considered hip. You know how fast trends move on the internet... even in general.
    I look forward to what the new generation of social media will be though. Interesting things lie ahead.

    I have not been on there forever, I did not even know that it got a new look. Maybe I will have to check it out but I doubt that unless it is just fantastic, I would stay. Good for them that they can get it looking better and maybe that will draw more people to it.

    It opened up a lot of marketing opportunities for those who are musically-inclined to promote their music. I still have some of my friends at the classic Myspace page but I've no idea if they are still active there or not. They probably switched to Facebook.

    But I will take it look at it, kinda curious to see what direction they are taking with it.

    I too do not remember any of that stuff. While I am curious as to what they are doing, I just do not see it making the comeback. Myspace is old news to me.

    Quite honestly I have not been to myspace for a long time. I guess it just sort of phased out on my when fb came into play. Since then I have not been back as I find that I have much more luck with fb. And I find it more interesting then myspace ever was.
