There will be a relaunch of MySpace, the one-time titan of social networking. The site will apparently be reborn as a media-centric network and look a lot like Pinterest according to this video. It won’t be exclusively for musicians and bands. Photographer, filmmakers, designers and dedicated fans of them are encouraged to sign up for an invite.
On the new site posts are laid out in the gridded format that emphasizes large photo icons. Users can scroll through these posts horizontally, in contrast to the vertical scroll format used by many popular social networks. Pages showcase personal playlists, upcoming concerts and trending music news. There’s even a nifty analytics page that lets those making films or music see the gender, age and geographic breakdowns of their audiences.
