1. Hate it already.

Reminds me of Bing.

I prefer the simple Facebook format, basic white background, though it's been getting to be a bit annoying, too.

I like Linked In, too, except they won't let me merge two accounts.

2. The few times I thought to go, I actually like what Myspace had become - a really good music player



So I hope they haven't messed that up.

3. No

Two reasons:

1. They already killed their brand. Nobody is interested in something called "MySpace" anymore.
2. Facebook has locked that market up. For a large number of users it would be a large hassle to transfer their social network activity from primarily being in Facebook to some other site... so you would have to overcome that by not only meeting but exceeding what Facebook offers by sufficient degree to make the hassle of a switch worth it. Which isn't happening, unless Facebook seriously screws up and drives it's customers away so they go looking for a new home anyway.

5. I agree with you

Back in the day Myspace was the place to go, now it's akin to the newsgroups...useful but not very popular anymore.
