But do you think you could ever use MySpace again? What would they need to do?
i wonder if it actually does anything.
also msn messenger
the old myspace was better
those were the days
Fine by me.
But funny, considering the context http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/jun/30/myspace-internet
What's their niche going to be?
You can "connect with" someone - i.e. be their friend (like Facebook).
You can comment on a photo or status update from someone you've connected with or comment on the music they're listening to (like Facebook).
You can chat with friends (like Facebook).
You have notifications (like Facebook).
What added value are they providing here? Do people still use it to listen to music from new bands, or do they just use Soundcloud/Mixcloud/YouTube/Bandcamp instead?
It's like 2005 never ended.
Most people use Facebook simply because its convenient to now (as virtually everyone's on it), not because its functional or aesthetically pleasing. DEFINITELY not for those reasons.
And because it's become hegemonic in its field (at least in the English speaking world) for quite a few years now - longer than Myspace's period of dominance between 2005 and 2007 - people don't really want to change. That said with FB essentially becoming one big marketing site, then perhaps that does open up the field slightly. But Google Plus was supposed to be a mass market social networking site and even its keenest supporters wouldn't say it's been anything other than a damp squib.
was that the sort of people who were really hyping it up, were also part of the relative minority of people who really, really, really give a shit about social networking.
it's just more of the fucking same
that is brilliant — and completely on the money — btw.
but I think this looks great, but it's a shame it'll be nearly impossible to convince people to come back to MySpace. Probably would've been better off launching this under a new brand.
mais je pense que cela ressemble beaucoup, mais c'est une honte que ce sera presque impossible de convaincre les gens de revenir sur MySpace. Serait sans doute mieux fait de lancer ce sous une nouvelle marque.
But yeah, looks exciting. Was actually just lamenting the death of MySpace (miss those bulletins!) over the weekend. Would love for the new platform to catch on. Perhaps MySpace won't have all of the privacy flaws of its younger brother Facebook.
everytime i accidentally click on a link
I reckon bands will go back to it like cassettes
then people will realise half their friends aren't on it and will just drift back to Facebook. Unless they are predicting that Facebook will just suffer a massive collapse and they will mop up all their users?
nobody can remember their password anymore
I used it as a Facebook for Music. All the small bands I loved I could easily find their gigs. All ther listings we're on the front page. Then they tried to rival Facebook and screwed it all up.
If it goes back to how it was/or an updated version (but easy to find gigs), then I'll be using it
...but only if it scrobbles
Facebook meets Tumblr. What the fuck is the point? And what on earth were they thinking having in the first second of that video: sign in with Facebook/sign in with Twitter. OR just use Facebook/Twitter.
