Looks pretty nice, but I think it's far too late for a comeback now.
Its actually an interesting thought what the value of the "myspace" brand provides. This is essentially a completely new startup. Keeping the "myspace" helps with the press as its sure to make news, but people will also dismiss it just for being "myspace" but would give a differently named startup a chance.

I think this is the right move though. People will dismiss it at first, sure, but others will actually give it a chance. If its any good, the "new myspace is actually pretty good" message will spread. If they didn't use the "myspace" name, a lot fewer people would use it at first and it would never gain any traction.

Watching the video, I'm certainly intrigued. Certainly too early to paint it as a success or failure, but if it *ever* was going to have a chance to succeed again, it needs something like this.

Looks like they've tried to over complicate things with the new lay out. Time for a Dragons Den moment, "so for that reason....I'm out".

Looks pretty simple to me, especially compared to timeline

looks like a cross between pinterest, zune, and itunes. very attractive. that said, i don't care how many justin timberlakes you put on it, myspace probably isn't making a comeback.

This will end the constant teasing of Myspace that has gone on for the last 6 years or so... because it looks nothing like it did. It's got that going for it.

They should change the name to Faceinterestwitumbgram though.

My initial reaction echoed much of this thread. The one realm where it could do okay, though, is with bands. Music-based facebook profiles are still largely a mess IMO

Looks like it's going to be very music music-focused. I might consider using it for that since the music features on Facebook are pretty terrible.
