MySpace: The comeback starts here with Justin Timberlake and a redesign (video)
Remember when MySpace was the go-to social networking site? Now we bet you can’t even remember your password for it. Well that could change if a Justin Timberlake and friends planned redesign catches the hearts and imagination of both new and former users.
The social networking site that enjoyed huge success before being muscled out by the likes of Facebook and Twitter has published a video demoing some of the delights we can expect from the revamp.
Gone is the cluttered, colour sporadic interface and in is a far more clean tile-like experience. Music remains at the heart of the site, with users able to search for new and old artists, discovering songs, albums, fan pages, videos and mixes. However, photos, wall posts and even trending topics (ahem…Twitter?) are far more prominent.
MySpace has published the following message on its site, new.myspace.com and is inviting prospective users to register their interest by sending their email address:
“We’re hard at work building the new Myspace, entirely from scratch. But we’re staying true to our roots in one important way - empowering people to express themselves however they want. So whether you’re a musician, photographer, filmmaker, designer or just a dedicated fan, we’d love for you to be a part of our brand new community."
MySpace now has the backing of pop star turned actor, Justin Timberlake who is a major shareholder in the site. The video below even gives us a glimpse into his own page.
While we can’t promise a MySpace profile as star studded as JT’s, first impressions are good.
Could there be a new - well, old - kid on the social networking block?
