The New Myspace!

Maybe you’ve heard there’s now a new version of an old social networking service?

The “old” Myspace has been (or should I say it’s BEING?) replaced by the New Myspace.

The New Myspace is called … New Myspace!

Isn’t that a clever name for it?

Justin Timberlake is behind the New Myspace redesign/relaunch.  Initial “exclusive” invitations were aimed, in large part, at the music community.

In fact, a first look at New MySpace indicates music is deeply integrated in the New MySpace format.

Now, a few days into the beta launch, “invitations” are beginning to spread to other creatives and across industries.

(I felt like The Uncool Kid because I accidentally gave them my email address with a typo in it.  I have since built a beginning profile, but I haven’t had time to play around much there yet.)

New MySpace presents content in a horizontal format, unlike Facebook’s vertical layout.

Initial feedback from my less-typo-prone friends (who have had a few days to play with it) indicates the launch is getting people really excited and enthused.

People can’t stop talking about how much they love New Myspace.

Yes, apparently there are a few glitches –

But that’s to be expected when a new platform is still in beta.

(I was the cause of my own glitch …!)

New Myspace (supposedly) isn’t out to compete with Facebook.

However, everyone I know testing out New Myspace, keeps mentioning they like it much MORE than Facebook.

You can get a sneak peek, and request an invitation, by clicking here.

    It does not take us to your page; it defaults to the new “homepage.” Bastards – I wanted to see it.

    My first thought when I read this was, “Oh, swell – another social media site to keep up with…” This stuff is brutal.

    However, I used to have a MySpace page, before I started blogging; after that, I never really logged in again. And, of course, Facebook and Twitter also left poor MySpace in the dust. Well, I requested an invite, so we’ll see what happens. Their demon kind of sucks – it scrolls by way too quickly for this old broad, but I’ll at least see what it’s all about.

      I know – it’s annoying.
      I guess they’re doing that because it’s in beta.
      Sorry about that …

      I’ve noticed it’s a little slow, but seems to be improving.
      I really like what they’ve done with music, but there are some areas for improvement also.
