Myspace Teases New Interface

September 26th, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Myspace, the social networking site that defined the early 2000s, will undergo another major makeover in an attempt to recapture the interest of hipsters looking for throwback and not-too-crowded ways to connect with friends. Apart from ditching the brackets on My[_____], the social network co-owned by Justin Timberlake rebuilt its interface from the ground up.

The new look bears almost no similarity to its previous incarnations. While Myspace still heavily focuses on music with its integrated playlist creator, the new design features stripped-down visuals with thin sans serif fonts, large images, and soft grays. The profile page is dominated with a single large image that completely fills the window, accompanied with images and status updates arranged in a side-scrolling grid. Users can still integrate their Myspace to popular competitors, including Twitter and Facebook. You can say that the new Myspace takes cue from the likes of Pinterest, Tumblr, and Google+.

If you still do not have a Myspace account, you can sign up for an invite and expect one to arrive “very soon.”
