New MySpace opens to the public
After being almost rendered obsolete by Facebook and Twitter, the dethroned king of social network returns with a redesigned look and is now called the “New MySpace“.
Currently, the site’s landing page shows the actor/singer and MySpace co-owner, Justin Timberlake and his advertisement for his latest single, “Suit & Tie”, featuring Jay-Z. From there users can choose to start a new account or sign-up using their Facebook, Twitter, or old MySpace credentials.
Part of the New MySpace look is the horizontal scrolling of the page instead of vertical, and a music deck located at the bottom of the page which you can use to browse and control online media. Users can choose to share the song they’re listening to, assign it as a profile song, mix tunes, or discover similar music. To put it bluntly, the whole thing looks like a marriage of Grooveshark and iTunes that went social.
If you want to take it for a spin you can visit the site at the new.myspace.com then tell us what you think.
