why

done in one.

man metaphysical: why


Because.
- It is a known brand name.
- If FB gets too deep into ad-pushing or information leaking, MySpace is a place 'to go back to'.
- MySpace still has an infrastructure in place, which makes it cheaper (in a sense) than a start up
- Farmville (ok.ok.ok.. this one is just a joke)

I created an account just to squat my preferred username. If for some reason it becomes big, at least I won't have to settle for something with half a dozen random digits trailing it.

I signed in with my original myspace account name.. And I signed right back off again..

During xmas I was talking to someone about Myspace. He was telling me all the changes that had been made and how much better it is now. Then he said he wasn't actually using it. *facepalm*

That somehow looks worse than the current Facebook layout.

The My Little Pony Killer: That somehow looks worse than the current Facebook layout.


It's the new fad in web page design that all the leading edge hipster sites are using

"Make it complicated and as unorganized as possible so no one has any clear direction of what they're supposed to actually do and just start clicking on shiat out of pure confusion"

myspace is awesome because it has the track "slow fast food love" on it.

I love that song. the female singers voice is out of this world.

I don't care how much you hate MySpace, it's still better than Facebook.

My company designs systems this way.

Is that an actual screenshot?!?!

Gah, its like someone telepoded Facebook and Pinterest.

So it's got the active user base of Google Plus with the retro nostalgia value of 2004?

Don't understand the MySpace hate.  They moved pretty much into the music space.  Almost all local bands have a MySpace page.  And its no longer the ugly backgrounds, etc. it was way back when.

As social media it fails. You got your own website, like a weak geocities, except there wasn't much you could put on it, and no one knew if you updated it.

It works for bands, but it's just your band's music, tour dates and videos. It's not a better way to interface with listeners than a website, because there's no point in them logging on to myspace.
 
2013-01-15 03:08:16 PM  
Well it fails completely for me, I try to login with my old details and it just locks up with a blank page.
 
2013-01-15 03:09:27 PM  
Eh, I haven't decided. I still have my original MySpazz account. But it looks like the new one is limiting content creation to known RIAA members.
 
2013-01-15 03:23:08 PM  
its fun to google some of the members on FARK who use the same handle here and on MySpace, except they have forgotten about their MySpace account even exiting that totally has their real name and location and picture in it.

Just tried logging on using my almost forgotten username and password, just told me that my username or password were invalid...

Are they not letting 'before' users log on? Do they want you to make a new page?

Fark it, if they don't want the 'old' me then I don't want the 'new' them...

BHShaman: Because.
- It is a known brand name.



It's a brand synonymous with failure. It's like naming a new product Betamax or New Coke.

You can. I logged right in with my 9000 year old account.

I'm doubting this was actually beta tested.. The page formatting is atrocious.. I have to side scroll to read certain shiat that is for some farking reason 9000 miles off to the right and out of view until you side scroll.

Yup.. They wiped every account clean.. A little too clean. There was nothing there. Not even the date you signed up..  The whole site had this Chernobyl feel to it.

Been on it for a while now.  My only gripes are that it's almost impossible to find how to do anything useful and the UI wants to scroll sideways.  (In other words, it's basically useless.)  At least now I have some idea why strangely-named people are starting to add me.

No way man, that's totally hip! Only squares scroll vertical!

huh. so everything I had is now gone?

You're actually dead.. Try mydeathspace.com you are there.

Haha you can sign in to myspace with your facebook account. Really.

G+

At least my friends on G+ don't nag me for help farming. It also has settings I can understand and defaults everything to "Private" instead of "Get my ass fired".
