I’m on Myspace (Again)

Deja vu. I logged into Myspace yesterday for the first time in seven years. But this isn't standard myspace. This is the invite-only closed beta of "new myspace". And it's radically different. The new myspace is more of a music discovery and sharing service than a social network. Whereas the old Myspace was comparable to facebook, the new myspace is based on the same idea as Apple's failed social network, Ping with one fundamental difference. The music on myspace is free, and (currently) ad-free. Today I'm writing a series of posts on the new iPhone including my New Myspace review … [Read more...]

Exclusive Review: New Myspace (2013)

Facebook Releases “Don’t Be Evil” plugin For Google

I think I will be keeping it.Posts provided by The App Store Chronicle- All Rights reserved … [Read more...]

Myspace: How long till bankruptcy?

Myspace was the first into the frontier of successful social networking. From 2005-2008 they were the most visited site in the world. From 2004-2008 I had an account. Myspace wasn't always just creeps and bad musicians.But Facebook kicked Myspace's @$$ and now they are #1 and Myspace is #130 and falling. Myspace's founder Tom Anderson even said on a recent visit to Facebook Hq "Why am I not on MySpace? Because, I left the company in early 2009, and like most of you, I don't like using it anymore.. not a fan of what the new folks have done with MySpace". For those of you who don't already know … [Read more...]
