Yes you read that right. MySpace is back, new, improved and very different.
Mashable have a very good round up of the new MySpace service with the opening paragraph summing up how I felt after using the service for the first hour:
The new MySpace is pretty. It incorporates many of the trends in modern web design and social media — big visuals, responsive design, easy discovery — and gives them a clear focus: connecting through music. And it really works.
The new MySpace is all about Music, and it makes finding existing artists and new artists very very easy. The fully integrate audio player, constantly located at the bottom of the screen, allow you to continue to listen while exploring further. My only gripe is at times the site is a little confusing to navigate and you end up accidentally playing music you did not intend.
Finally I really liked the 404 Page Not Found page:
We’re sorry, we can’t find the page you’re looking for. But what we can do is offer you this special mix of tunes with running time of exactly 4:04. Just click on the album covers, or one of the links below, and enjoy.
If you are into music go check it out.
