You know it.
First off, watch the video above – then let’s talk about it.
If the entire video looks unfamiliar to you, that’s because it is. This isn’t the MySpace you used to know. It has been completely revamped and funny thing – it includes features from various other social media websites. You can log in with Facebook, the pictures are large and inflated like Flickr, and the layout is a little bit like Tumblr. There’s no denying, however, that the interface is what makes this transformation complete. While Facebook continues to upgrade their look with Timeline and who knows what else, new MySpace decided to simplify everything for you. It looks good.
Now I know there are going to be some haters in this audience that don’t like change. Hey, I don’t like change all of the time either. There are people that still only use Facebook and still complain about Timeline and how it is just NOW affecting their experience. Bros – if you didn’t get Timeline a year ago like everyone else, you are behind the curve. Yes, you. Why do you want to be late on discovering what is evolving in social media? Maybe it’s just me, but as an avid participant, I want to be the first and …the first (this girl) just signed up to be invited for the new MySpace.
Did I mention that Justin Timberlake had his hands all over this? I mean couldn’t you tell? Sexy…hands. No? No. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE!
At some point, everyone jumps on the band wagon. So you can give the new Myspace a chance (which maybe you should, there’s a huge music emphasis this time around and it seems like fun) or you can sulk in the corner with your Facebook timeline and wonder why God is punishing you. Meanwhile, everyone has already swiftly transitioned and is laughing at your misfortune. Truth.
And because I enjoy Justin Timberlake so much…
Yeah you’re welcome.
