MySpace Gets a Serious Facelift

By September 24, 2012

Follow me on:

Does anybody remember MySpace? Anyone? Ever since Facebook skyrockted to fame on the Internet in the mid-2000s, it seemed that MySpace became a shadow of what social networking once used to be.

But no more! After years of lagging behind in the social networking world, it's getting a big push from a completely redesigned platform. MySpace gave us a preview today, which you can check out in the Vimeo video here, and invites will be sent out "very soon" once the new design is ready for the public.

At first glance, it looks a lot like Pinterest. But that's the route that many designers are taking these days, which is not much of a surprise.

But is it too late? Has the MySpace ship already sailed? With so many crazy social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and a million others, it will be interesting to see just how well the once-dominant MySpace will do with so much competition.
