We kind of had forgotten all about it until all these blog posts and news updates ran with a chorus about the awesomeness of a new Myspace revealed in a teaser video MySpace posted yesterday. Don’t write them off as yet, is the verdict you get reading all this. And watching this video:
For those of us with short memories, all eclipsed by Facebook’s addictiveness, Myspace was Facebook before Facebook. The new welcome page on Myspace says they are building the network from scratch, which is really great to hear. Social networking has been the same for a while now. We need a new Facebook and history kinda suggests we won’t be getting it from the Facebook team. Or the Google+ team.
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.
Nothing on the welcome page says when the new Myspace will be live, or if those with existing accounts on the network will have to “from scratch” along with the platform. We’re registering for invites regardless.
If they deliver on their promise, we’ll have a 4th formidable social media platform to waste our time on online.
We know data plans and bundles can be expensive in these parts, so here are a few screenshots form the video:
