(Buried lede: MySpace still exists!) One of the main selling points to MySpace used to be that it let users design their own pages – use crazy colors, background animations, funky layouts. The problem was, web design is kind of hard and most of those custom built user pages looked awful. Even the default settings looked pretty awful, actually. Now there's been a redesign and pages look a whole lot more like Facebook . I've been hearing for a while that MySpace was ready to walk away from the whole concept of personal social networking and exist more as an entertainment space with pages for bands, artists, movies and TV shows. This would seem to go against that.
