She is a winsome wee thing, She is a handsome wee thing, She is a bonny wee thing, This sweet wee wife o' mine - Robert Burns
ONETIME SOCIAL NETWORKING PIONEER Myspace is showing off its new look.
The website seems to have a particular focus on music, which might be because pop singer Justin Timberlake is involved with it. It might also be because Apple's Ping, which had a music focus, was so successful, but since it wasn't, we can only assume this is not the case.
You might still have a Myspace account, we do not know. Judging by comments under the video of the new look, the new look is not live yet. When it is users can expect a much different Myspace, as far as we can ascertain.
The two minute video that shows us what new Myspace looks like has been posted to Vimeo, and anyone that watches it will probably be spending two more minutes thinking about Myspace than they have in the last four years.
Whether anyone thinks we need another social network is anyone's guess, but we can only imagine that those people that have invested their cash in the website must hope that some people do.
You can have a test drive of the new Myspace at the new.myspace.com website. We had a go and found that we could listen to music on a pop-up player.
The website has a tiled view a bit like Windows 8, and it looks like you scroll from left to right, as opposed to up and down, to access content. That is radically different than Facebook, where you scroll downwards.
This could be the start of a return to form for Myspace, an operation that Rupert Murdoch once paid $580m to buy and later sold for $35m. µ
