Myspace redesign in an effort to rise again

Myspace was a big player in the social network market a few years ago but as Facebook came popular for its structure,layout and controls Myspace lost ground, Giving its users to much control of their profile layout was a big part of this, you only need to look at some Myspace profiles to see this, Letting users change the css meant some profiles were cluttered with background images then made the content impossible to read.

Back to now, Myspace are addressing its known issues with a brand new design which looks fresh and modern. Watch their new trailer https://new.myspace.com/play

It looks like a mix between Windows 8 and Pinterest in my opimnion, personally I don't like it but there's a few sites adopting this layout, its proving to be popular.

Is this too little too late? Has Myspace time passed?

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
