newmyspace – myspace is back

Totally surprised and without any warning. I coincidently read in google+, that myspace is back.
It is called “newmyspace.” And it is indeed.
For me myspace was my first contact to Social Media especially in providing content like music, pics
and videos. And then of course the first attempt of spreading the network by adding friends.
With my band fjuz I used it very often and we had good contact within the music scene for e.g. sharing gigs, cd labels or recording studios. We also presented new songs so we had been during that time really satisfied with it. The problem was the performance. As is it became really overcrowded and the appearance became more and more dizzy, the page lost its attraction. I am pretty sure, if myspace had been more creative and sensible in time about what the user really wants, they could have been really more successful.

So now they are back and the first impression is – that they learnt about the past. The design is really convincing and is driven by simplicity. In fact it looks really cool. From the beginning it is really obvious
It is about music. This should just give the answer to those between you starting to ask – “myspace-what is it for?”
It is for those who love music. Being informed about musicians and their activities and giving bands without labels the possibility to share their songs.

At the end it is about you and me as a user what we do make about it. What I do really appreciate is – that their is no simple copy your friends from facebook button. This would automatically would lead to the mistakes, which have been made in the past.
No – you invite the persons which are important to you and from which you are assume they are music lovers via email.

So let´s give it a try and forget some minutes about your Facebook mainstream account. If you want to find me (and my music) at – have a look here.
