New MySpace: A Review and How To Get Your Invite! - Page 2
Make no qualms, this is not a simple site upgrade. This is absolutely new, a complete start-over, so you are not going to find your old MySpace buddies here until they get an invite as well and begin from scratch, just like the rest of us.
As it is the Holiday season, I searched for and found Michael Buble's Christmas album and connected with it. I created a Christmas music mix and connected to the album, so I could find and play all of the music, for free. You can find the songs in any chosen mix by hovering at the bottom of the site, where an iTunes-like interface lets you can jump between songs as you please, pause, stop or shuffle the mix.
The New MySpace feels and looks like a mashup of so many other networks: it has a sideways, endless content stream similar to Pinterest, the limited, 150 character status update feel of Twitter, a friend suggestion process similar to Facebook's and a musical matching service that knocks on Pandora's door. The coupling of these features brings new people and content to my stream, allowing for a multitude of new music discoveries.
I'm really looking forward to this.
So, how do you get your invite, too? Well, you can either submit your email address to the New Myspace and wait, and the MySpace reboot will eventually open for all - however long that takes. Or, you can share this article on Twitter using the Tweet button above. I will check the comments below for the tweets, and use a random number generator to count and pick a commenter once a day for 8 days, beginning today. I'll respond directly to your Twitter account if you win, so you don't have to worry about sharing your email address online for all to see.
