The death of MySpace
Perhaps you wont agree but I am pretty convinced that MySpace has completely played out its role as the main route to market for musicians. Other initiatives like Facebook, Bandcamp, CDBaby and SoundCloud provides much greater opportunity for today’s bands to make themselves heard. Not to mention all the useless adds that tend to span and clutter the user experience of MySpace. The reason I am writing this is because MySpace has made some final spasmatic moves in the grave by redesigning the website to be more up to par with contemporary sites. Below is a video from MySpace that they hope will lure users back. I can just hope that if they succeed I sure hope they make it MUCH MUCH more easy to use and especially when it comes to re-design and customize your home page to reflect the bands cultural values and expressions.
