I really do. He's brilliant.

I'm sure we spoke about this before, just got deja vu.

I managed to get a beta invite and registered, but haven't done anything with it since then. I'm honestly kinda waiting for Facebook to die, so any more social networking, let alone Myspace, does not interest me.

But...JT

It had potential with music because it gave bands a blank page to do what they wanted and a music player to showcase their music.

But the biggest thing it had going for it in terms of music was that it allowed fans to connect with the band like never before.

The 'social garbage' was what made it work.

When facebook dies, some other site would take over.

It's comparable to the hate against famous bubblegum pop artists.

Jonas Brothers were hated, then came Justin Bieber who everyone hated subsequently. After the hate against Justin Bieber, there is a similar hatred (albeit not as strong) against One Direction.

On topic, Myspace is probably not coming back. They should rather change their name, so the name has more of a connection to music, and so that the site would distance itself from the the old one.

See, that's the reason why I like it. It's not about "OMG (insert juicy rumor here)" like facebook is these days*. It's about being connected to musicians/bands.

*It's amazing how many people who have graduated high school still spread rumors on fb. Some of them are even in their late 20s and 30s and should know better.

You still have that, just in a cleaner and more simplistic form.

But then it's just a niche social network. And they don't work.

But it's ineffective because you're not connecting with your fans/putting yourself out there to any new fans.

The social aspect of social networking is key.
