[READ THE WHOLE QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS AT THE END OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

Myspace has tried to come back with a vengeance.  In the last week of October 2010, Myspace relaunched with the Myspace 3.0 Experience.  Where it used to be a “place for friends”, it is now a “social entertainment destination”.  This version is more streamlined, easier to read and navigate and not crazy with page design.

A)  By watching the videos below, can you analyze what is good and what is bad with the new Myspace design?

B)  How can this redesign turn into people actually coming back to myspace and making it the number 1 social networking site again?  Or can it?

C)  How does this new look of Myspace compare/contrast to Facebook?  Explain ALL of  your answers.

    A)The good thing is that you can design your own page. You can put people on to your page. the bad thing is that it will get old and no one will like myspace any more. They all are going to Facebook.
    B)If myspace can bake there space better it can com back. But I don’t think that any one will go back to myspace. The love Facebook better.
    C)Compare: they both have every thing that people wants. You can do cool things on them. like put music on to your page.
    Contrast:Facebook has more what people won’t.Myspace only thing you can do is design your page.

    a- a good thing about the new myspace is that its easier to share on each socail site then having to go to each site. and a bad thing is that it has alot of ads , so it is easy to get desracted.

    b- it could bring people back becuase it is easier to share stuff, more excitment and colors, and brings a diffrent vibe to you when your on this site.

    c- its that same basic rules and same basic actions you can take as facebook like the home button, and the profile button, but myspace is more viberent and more exciting as visual wise.

    A)I think that the new design for myspace is very nice. They might get more people to go there.

    B) It might get as much people as facebook or more because of all the new features.

    C)They both are chat sites that are “off the charts”. They are different by myspace having better designs and FB just being a chat site.

    A. I do not see anything good or bad about the new design. I don’t mess with Myspace at all so it would be hard for me to speak on my opinion.
    B. I think Myspace needs to just give up. Facebook has basically tooken over. however I have been hearing that Facebook is ending in March and I have been hearing people say that they will go back to Myspace. So if Myspace does become popular again it would most likely be for that reason.
    C. I do see some similarities. The way the page is set up is similar to the way Facebook is set up.

    A). I think they put too much new stuff. It makes it hard to find somethings.

    B). I don’t think a new layout will change anything. They have had many different layouts, and nothing helped them get users back.

    C). I think that Facebook and Myspace are anything alike, minus the fact that they are social networking websites. I think that Facebook truly is the social networking dominator.

    A) By watching the videos below, can you analyze what is good and what is bad with the new Myspace design? it has music videos that you can watch and share. You can also communicate with your friends on there. That was the good thing now the bad things are ther are some bad people that get on facebook. There are also other bad things

    B) How can this redesign turn into people actually coming back to myspace and making it the number 1 social networking site again? Or can it? ithink it can because people want to go to new and better websites

    C) How does this new look of Myspace compare/contrast to Facebook? Explain ALL of your answers. it compares by bolth being able to talk to your friends on the and it contrast because facebook is less complicated then myspace

    A.well it looks alright and not as bring as the old myspace.
    B.well to many people are already on facebook which is the #1 social networking site now so it might bring them to maybe second if it is good enough.
    C.well facebook is way more popular than myspace has ever been. yet myspace was fun to get on at its time in popularity. but it does not compare to it becouse if it is an entertainment website then no comparison.

    A.) Clearly nothing is wrong. But that’s if you like Myspace. To me, Myspace still isn’t as good as Facebook. No matter what they put in the ads, that doesn’t mean they’ll live up to it and keep their promises.

    B.) I mean this ad can definitely tempt people into going back to Myspace. But the thing is, people like me won’t actually believe it until they see it. Since they say Myspace is “more up-to-date” or “entertaining”, people will be returning to Myspace no doubt. The amount of people is a mystery as of now.

    C.) I think that Myspace doesn’t look as bad as it use to. But i’m not returning to it anytime soon.

    A) IT MIGHT BE GOOD BUT I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE BETTER THAN FACEBOOK.

    B) MAYBE IT CAN HAVE MORE APPS AND STUFF TO DO.

    C) FACEBOOK IS MORE OPEN THAN MYSPACE, PLUS YOU CAN DO MORE STUFF ON FACEBOOK, AND MYSPACE IS NOT REALLY DETAILED.

    A) To me there is nothing wrong. The new design is pretty cool.

    B) The redesign can pull people back to myspace because of everything you can do. There is still a lot less besides games on facebook. If you like a lot of music tv movies and games you would probably go back to myspace.

    C)The new look compares to easier access to everything and drop down boxes. Plus the page view. Contrast are pretty much everything else because myspace does alot more than facebook. But facebook may be liked more because of it being fun simple and easy to use.
