Hey guys, remember MySpace? As much as you’d probably prefer to not recall all of your ridiculous and semi-shameful internet hijinks of yesteryear, it seems that the networking site is hellbent on not dying just yet.
Internet-folks will remember when, a while back, Justin Timberlake decided to get involved in “developing the creative direction and strategy for [Myspace] moving forward.” Well, a few weeks ago Mr Timberlake proceeded to tweet the above video out to his followers, and now there’s this fancy new landing page promising big things.
While it’s easy to write this off as another death throe from MySpace, the revamp has been gaining a surprising amount of attention over the last few weeks. It’s hard to see MySpace reclaiming its former glory from the now ubiquitous Facebook (in fact, it kind of looks like MySpace is giving in a little; enabling users to link in with their Facebook profiles), but the preview sure as hell looks a damn sight finer than FB’s clunky blue interface.
Will the near future see the return of MySpace, or will this whole thing fizzle out before anybody decides to give a shit? Only time will tell.
