After years of suffering set backs and playing second fiddle to Facebook Myspace may be back. The site has been revamped and refocused, instead of competing with Facebook the site now let's you link with the social networking giant. Myspace is now focusing more on music and boasts more free music than any other site on the internet (suck on that Spotify). Much of Myspace is still the same, however, customized profile pages and the like. Though those too have been slightly revamped and gone are they day with those annoying pages with 20 videos that don't even load and slow your computer. The site released Monday that over the last month it had gained over a million new users which it is crediting to it's new music player. Another note worthy mention is it's huge music library boasting over 42 million songs and now limit to how many songs you may listen to (again suck it Spotify). The news is a much needed boost to the company which had been seen as dead on arrival to most. However, since it's buyout by a team of investors, including Justin Timberlake, and restructuring the company seems to be making headway. I myself just recently re-created a profile to see if the new site really did stand up to the hype. So far I've really enjoyed it and if you have a Facebook the site actually exports all of your likes and creates a music playlist for you to start with. It also makes sharing on other social networking sites really simple, though I have not yet attempted to link it with my Google+. It also offers other features, such as linking your favorite blogs to your page...you know like this one. All in all it seems like a vast improvement over the Myspace of old and will be interesting to see how the company progresses.
