It seems like ten years ago that "Tom" was relevant or so it seems. With the "re-launch" of myspace (yes, the MySpace) I feel like I need to borrow the "MySpace for Dummies" book. Oh, the annoying GIFs and videos that slowed down the page load time. The hideous background images! And don't forget the "friends" who could clutter your page with their photos.
Wait, that doesn't exist anymore?
Since Justin Timberlake bought Myspace for $35 million in 2011, the social network has changed from walls to "Specific Media," part of the restage that also includes slick design and the ability to include people, music, and pop culture in the network. The new site looks NOTHING like the old one. Content is streamed now in a more modern layout that clean, simple, kind of like iTunes new look with Apple's iOS 7.
The new Myspace is completely focused on owning the music crowd. Established artists as well as up and coming acts can easily post and share their music. The media bar at the bottom of the page clearly captures "music" fans, prompting you to sign in to listen to music. Music is what kept Myspace in business until Justin Timberlake dropped $35 million to buy the site. The BIG question now is: do you remember your old username and password (or will you go dig it up) to log in, again?
