Can a Flashy New Redesign Make Myspace Cool Again?

By Eric Limer on at

Myspace, that ancient social networking dinosaur, is back with a new coat of paint. And get ready for this: it looks kind of neat. The new format has some pretty clear Pinterest and Tumblr influence, and also looks like it'll be doubling down on the music aspect of the Myspace world, maybe giving Spotify's social aspects a little competition. Maybe.

The redesign isn't live yet, but you can put in for early access over at new.Myspace page. I did. What do you think? Are you ready to give Myspace another go, or is this just a pointless stunt by a permanently irrelevant network? [Vimeo, thanks Ryan!]
