The new Myspace has opened to the public after being invite-only for the last few months. While it is worlds away from the website that was so popular in my middle school years, some aspects have not changed.
The design features unique horizontal navigation and is reminiscent of Pinterest with a focus on visuals. The revamped profile page allows a 150 character bio, spotlights a profile and background photo, profile song, and still allows users to display their “Top 8″ friends.
Myspace revolves around music; Myspace’s partnerships with many music labels have created a seamless sharing experience and many artists have already joined and made personal profiles. All content is found in your stream– photos, music, statuses, links, and videos. Like Facebook Chat and Gtalk, Myspace has an instant messaging feature where users can choose to be seen as on or offline.
A final feature that is exclusive to Myspace is mixes. A mix is a collection of stuff: songs, photos, statuses. The site will make three mixes for you by default; a Stream Mix (stuff you post to the site), Profile Mix (your profile photos and songs), and Cover Mix (an album of your cover photos).
