The day we’ve all been waiting for is here: MySpace is finally making a comeback! Earlier this week, the formerly-relevant website revealed its redesign in an attempt to reemerge in the social networking world.
On Tuesday, MySpace, which is now owned by Specific Media and Justin Timberlake, published a video preview of their new look. The website will still focus on music and entertainment, as it always has, but now it is much more aesthetically pleasing. The site promises to start sending out invitations soon.
Many observers are saying that the redesign is a similar set up to Pinterest, not only in look, but in its sharing abilities between users. If this new redesign can attract users back to MySpace, it could potentially reclaim its spot atop the social networking world.
But, what exactly does all of this mean for journalists? Well, the new MySpace will feature live updates and events as well as notifications. The redesign also pushes the sharing of links, news, music, etc. among users. The homepage will feature popular things being shared and promoted.
Since the new MySpace still plans to focus on music and entertainment, it will provide a better medium for sharing and promoting news from these categories. It will give journalists in those fields a great place to connect to all of the information they need.
So, what do you say, fellow journalists? Would you use the new MySpace? Let us know in the comments!
