What’s even more important though is the layout, content, and philosophical shift that MySpace has taken on. More from Mashable:
The launch of the new MySpace begins today; it marks not only the release of a completely overhauled design, but the start of a fundamental shift in focus for what was once the world’s preeminent social network.
MySpace will roll out a completely revamped interface to its users starting today, but the rollout won’t be complete until the end of November.
Everything from the homepage to profiles to the new Topic Pages focus on transforming MySpace from a social network into a “social entertainment destination.”
The site is now focused exclusively on the 13 to 35-year-old demographic — Generation Y, in other words.
Its new goal is to become “the leading entertainment destination that is socially powered by the passions of fans and curators.” This is in contrast to its old goal of being “a place for friends.”
And that’s only scratching the surface of the changes to the website, not to mention the new mobile experience that will launch next month. (More here)
So that’s the experience as a user, but what about as an artist? Does MySpace still matter for you?
Both articles make good points, but for me, because of the MySpace search rank and my own laziness, for now I think I’ll stick with MySpace.
