The New Myspace

The new Myspace from Myspace on Vimeo.

Myspace just recently unveiled their new look last night, a product of a major overhaul in a visual sense as well as redefining the identity of the once popular social network. It looks pretty impressive so far, taking queues from websites like Pinterest and Tumblr with the large, bold content panel approach, mixed with the clean aesthetics of a website like Vimeo. And more than anything, this new Myspace is still going to maintain it's emphasis on music, an interesting direction the social network headed after indie bands started to use the service as a marketing tool for their music.

Will it work for the beleaguered website? Who knows, but you can definitely tell that there is a lot of potential here to capture and secure a niche. While Facebook stumbles a step or two amidst a botched initial public offering, this was pretty great timing on their part to get some buzz going for their relaunch. What do you guys think about this new direction?
