Mission Chinese Makes Us Miss Myspace

Herman Yung shared this amazing screenshot on his blog of Mission Chinese’s restaurant website looking like an old school Myspace layout. There’s so much to love about this and so much nostalgia, but is this the right move for them? I mean, where’s the link for the menu even! (cause honestly, that’s usually all I care about.) True story – I actually tried to log into my old Myspace account the other day so I could pull up something to write a post later on this week and found myself being completely shut out. It made me a little sad. I remember when updating my Myspace and altering the html and css made me the happiest teenager in the world.

Blog Posts Roundup 1/3/13

There were just too many fantastic reads today that I couldn’t make a post about every single one of them.  Seriously, they are taking up all my tabs so I decided to turn them into a roundup post for your viewing convenience.

1. Facebook Prototype – Swedish designer Fred Nerby created this awesome prototype of a possible Facebook user interface that looks nothing like Timeline. Instead it resembles something more of the renovated MySpace, but damn, this looks. good. If you want to see the details clearer, watch the Vimeo in full screen. [Source]

Welcome to the New MySpace

myspace

 

I just received my invite to the new MySpace! Should I go through with it? Readers, what do you think?

Let’s pro/con this ish:

Pro: 

  • Justin Timberlake’s name is all over this
  • The new sleek interface
  • The focus on music

 

Con:

  • No one I know is on it
  • Creating an account right now takes too much time

MySpace Making A Comeback?

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.

Friendster Returns

After learning that Myspace will be reformed into a music platform, Friendster has decided to make its comeback by being a game-focused social networking site. If you previously had a Friendster account, you will still be able to log in – but get this – you can also log in using your Facebook account.

Owned.

MySpace sells for $35 Million

The text that accompanied this article that I read on this news today said that MySpace was sold for a mere $35 million. I’m sorry – when did $35 million become an insignificant amount of money? Okay- well when you compare it to the fact that News Corp. bought it for $580 million back in 2005 – it doesn’t look so good.  Anyways, MySpace has ended it’s social networking run – as expected – but will focus more on the entertainment aspect. Justin Timberlake, (yes Justin Timberlake) now has partial ownership of the company and hopes that its new pathway will continue to support the music industry.

“There’s a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favorite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect. MySpace has the potential to be that place,” Timberlake said in a statement. “Art is inspired by people and vice versa, so there’s a natural social component to entertainment.”

Is it just me…or is Justin Timberlake taking is role as Sean Parker too seriously?

It Ain’t Easy Being an Internet Personality…

The internet deserves a great deal of credit for making YouTube stars and molding internet personalities. With this kind of instantaneous fame, people can do just about anything. Fashion bloggers are designing collections with high end designers. The world applauded a young teenage boy who stood up to his bully in a video that went viral in less than 24 hours. Then there are stars like Justin Bieber. Where would you really be without YouTube?

Even though the internet can be generous with its offerings, it’s important to remember that the people behind the screen won’t always be so welcoming. As I was going through my daily reads, I came across an article that will be appearing in next month’s Rolling Stone Magazine about Kirsten Ostrenga AKA Kiki Kannibal, a young girl known for her scene queen personality. As her internet celebrity status skyrocketed, the young girl developed both a following of fans and haters.

I actually had no idea who Kiki Kannibal was until reading this article nor do I understand how MySpace can foster celebrities like this, but I did find this article an extremely interesting read.

MySpace Announces Partnership With Facebook

Before Facebook there was Myspace. Before Myspace, there was Friendster. At the rate we are going at right now, there may never be another social networking site after Facebook. The premiere social networking site has managed to eat up everything in its path and now it has practically swallowed Myspace. What other choice does a social networking site have left after another has practically taken all of its users? Join with the enemy. Yesterday afternoon, Myspace announced that they will be expanding on their already existing partnership with Facebook in a number of ways.

Users will now be able to log into their Myspace account by simply logging into their Facebook first, for those who are still on Myspace anyways. Myspace also plans to add a “Like” button to just about everything found on their website.

For more information on the merge, click here.
