MySpace has announced its fourth major redesign as it seeks to increase its falling popularity among internet users.
The new site will focus more on music and also offer deeper integration with Facebook and Twitter. According to the company, the web site will be built "entirely from scratch," and will be " a brand new community".
According to a preview video
posted online, the redesigned Mysapce.com features an entry log in page, large pictures and easy navigation among user's connections. Users can control audio content from a navigation panel and pair photograph albums with playlists in a kind of social media mix tape to mark any occasion. A Discover tab within the navigation panel will offer access to trending artists, music, mixes, radio, videos, news, and forthcoming concerts. Artist Pages are with the promise of lots of tracks, albums and videos.
Myspace has lost a significant part of its audience, which peaked to hundreds of millions in 2005. Now the company needs to become a social platform for bands and not just an alternative to Facebook.
