A couple of months ago I wrote a blog post about the resurrection of Myspace…and this morning I got an invitation to test it out.
After poking around, it is certainly much more functional than the old Myspace, but I am sure forward-thinking Myspace does not want to hear about old vs. new. Rather, how brands, musicians, and consumers can use Myspace and help reinstate its share in the social media market.
For now, this is clearly a tool for the music industry. Watch out Pandora. I have not set up my profile yet, but I can access multiple albums, musician/bands’ profiles, articles about the industry and even recent YouTube music sensations. Additionally, it is a largely visual platform making it a space for photographers, videographers, filmmakers and more to share their work.
We will keep you posted as we further explore Myspace and its potential for consumer marketing. For now, here are some screenshots for a quick look at the setup if you have not logged on.
