Former social media giant Myspace is set to relaunch, with pop star/actor Justin Timberlake as the Creative Director.
A preview video of the new platform has emerged showing a snap shot of the updated look. Interesting to note that users are able to integrate their current Facebook & Twitter accounts and even merge photos.
The full details of the new platform are currently unavailable, however the interim page https://new.myspace.com/ features the message:
Welcome. This is Myspace.
We’re hard at work building the new Myspace, entirely from scratch. But we’re staying true to our roots in one important way—empowering people to express themselves however they want. So whether you’re a musician, photographer, filmmaker, designer or just a dedicated fan, we’d love for you to be a part of our brand new community.
At a time when Facebook is receiving daily criticism, is this the perfect time for Myspace to relaunch?
Let’s hope they allow for sparkly backgrounds on the new version too!
