Can Redesigned Myspace Get Back in the Game?
Myspace, the social network giant of the late Jurassic, has finally changed its design. Though long overdue, the overhaul may make the service a player in the quicksilver social networking scene. There's real magic to be had when you swipe into the right hand section of the Myspace app. Similar to the new Google+ Android app, its swipe carousel actually defines the new design. Users will find their recent activity stylishly grouped in landscape mode and all information can be accessed from there. It's quite similar to the Windows 8
Metro interface. The new profile page also has a sleek design, and the flexibility of its new background should bring some long-dormant users back to the table. On the left side are the usual menu links (Profile, Latest, Mixes, Connections and Photos), while on the right you can see your latest status, current location and other information, much like Myspace's competitors provide. Another critical change is the addition of Twitter integration at login. Updated to work on smartphones, tablets, ultrabooks, etc., the much needed upgrades could open the door for Myspace to challenge Facebook's supremacy. Although that seems like a mission impossible, Myspace has unequivocally jumped into the fray.
