I had a My Space account (which was pretty much inactive) which I used as a place to store old photos. My old computer bit the dust, so a good portion of the photos that I lost were on My Space. Once I created a "new" profile (which I think was an upgrade from the old one), it wiped out whatever old pics I had up. I was very unhappy about that.
Otherwise aside from the photo issue, I do not use the site on a regular basis. I haven't actively used it since about 2008.
I liked the old Myspace. Especially because I was able to use css for making my very own layouts. The new myspace is only for people who want to promote themselves - like musicians. It's not for everyone. A social network it definitely isn't!!! I can't use it. For what purpose? I would not have given any stars at all.... Myspace is dead - to me!
used to be a great place to play but they got their god complex wouldn't stop making changes. Then they had so damn many pop up ads, virus' and every thing else it was just too much to handle. still have my profile for old time sake but like and old photo album it's just for memories now
They used to be kind of running out of steam, but their new design makes them once again the best platform for emerging artists to advertise show dates, album releases etc. Also a great way for people to discover new music.
Constantly changing and rarely for the better. its become so convoluted and complicated that its barely fun to play with. Where twitter is paced fun and free spirited, facebook pops along with10001 games you dont care about and feels more like spam email than sixties social media. but when it works, it works well and connects distant friends and family. its a blessing, but a frustrating one.
I have been a member of Myspace for a number of years, & until they changed to version 3.0, Myspace was my favourite site to meet with like minded friends & have fun creating profiles, that we could all enjoy.
Version 2.0 was superb & great fun to use.
Then disaster struck, with the introduction of the boring & far less creative version 3.0!!!!
Why of why the Myspace hierarchy felt they needed to destroy a site that was fun to belong to, & thus have tens of thousands of their members fleeing the sight, is completely beyond me.
I live in hope that one day Myspace will enable us to have all the freedom & fun we experienced with version 2.0, back again.
When people describe someone else as "peaked" just think of how popular MySpace was, and how quickly it died by allowing people to make their own pages look like crap. Great example of not thinking smart, and giving people everything they want without long term planning.
They were big when I was in high school (5 years ago) but have really fallen behind. They seem to try to do what Facebook does, but not as well. I do still have my MySpace though, just because there are videos on it that I don't have anywhere else.
