Myspace, has just revealed a video that teases the future of the dying social network. According to the company, the service is being rebuilt “entirely from scratch.”.
The teaser video below shows, that Myspace is debuting a media-focused social network which emphasises imagery, a static footer navigation bar with a built-in music player and a left-to-right timeline of posts.
Although, we will have to see if the features actually work together as smooth as the video shows. The design shown in the video is absolutely gorgeous. This is quite surprising seeing how Myspace has been quite ugly over the years.
If you visit new.myspace.com you can join the mailing list to find out when the new service is launched. Myspace haven’t given any details about the launch date, but it is a good idea to enter your email address to claim a spot – just incase Myspace gets popular again.
Here’s Myspace’s explanation of the upcoming service, which is all about “empowering people to express themselves however they want”:
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.
The screenshot below shows how celebrities can connect with their fans.
The status update screen, which looks to be available to entertainers, uses a sleek and minimal design that allows you to attach a photo or a song to a post.
The new Myspace seems to have taken a lot of work – and a lot of money – but is it enough to revive it? Only time will tell.
