Myspace launches new look, ignores conventional social networking layout

Myspace is back, new look, new model, and new everything

Myspace, the once king of social networking, has been hard at work completely redesigning the website and business model as well. The new design has been in beta for some time now, with only users who requested early access being able to participate, but now it's open to everyone.

The new site is bright, vibrant, and (thankfully) not full of glittery GIF images. Users can upload a "cover" photo as their background, "connect" to friends, celebrities, and entertainers, and even update your status. The social network also allows users to build playlist from what appears to be a music library that rivals Spotify.

As you can see above I did create an account for this article, and one interesting thing that popped up is that you can now sign up to the service by using Facebook or Twitter via OAuth. You can also access Myspace classic at the sign up page. Myspace says the redesign is focused around following artists and consuming content such as music, film and photographs.
