Can MySpace Ever Rebound?

There's no doubt about it. MySpace isn't what it used to be. But perhaps what's so unique about one of the very first social networking sites on the Internet is its determination to keep going amidst the popularity of other, more modern web giants like Facebook.

Those who still have MySpace will see a very different site when they log on. Particularly, they'll see a large image of Justin Timberlake (one of the main investors of the site) as well as a huge promotional headline about his new single, "Suit and Tie." Ugh. Better luck next time, MySpace. Do you think the site can ever rebound and become popular again?

TECH.FORTUNE.CNN.COM reports:
The new MySpace seems to be two things: a confusing mess for existing users (and maybe everybody else), and basically a promotional vehicle for the music star Justin Timberlake, one of the main investors in the site.

    It's old, dead, and slow. It would take a miracle to make that site popular again.

    besides, who really cares, who needs another area to give out personal information to the world, bad Idea to begin with.

    I actually like MySpace now that it only focuses on music. It looks nothing I remember from the 6th grade and I have a great time discovering new music.

    In fact, I just logged in to check it out, it's an entirely new website.

    They would have been better going with a new domain name for this project, as "MySpace.com" is more or less tainted now. In one minute, I haven't completely figured out the website, but I can see the potential.

    It's no longer a Facebook competitor, it's something entirely different. It's completely about music now. And after a little more exploration, it's quite nice in what it's trying to do. A little clunky at first, but with more users, things will smooth out. It's just going to take a serious ad campaign to revitalize this decaying domain name.

    But I wish it would! I miss being able to design my own page and add music to it. Facebook is boring in that way.

    It's a fad thing. Nobody has the guts to convert everyone back to MySpace because they know people will laugh at them.

    Even if it's better than Facebook it never will. It's a shame I thought MySpace was better than Facebook, it allowed more customization. But I'm done with MySpace.
