This is not a review, just some thoughts…
So I was scrolling through my daily emails which consists of a ton of newsletters from marketing and business sites and I ran across this article in the Social Media Examiner about using the new MySpace for business. Of course I instantly clicked on it and began to read because, well…MySpace was good to me back in the day. After about 10 minutes of trying to remember what my password was (I haven’t logged in to the site in about 4 years) I was in. I wanted to keep my Nobody Famous page so that was my first task. I was greeted by a home page that was pretty basic. I had the option to to follow Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and Beyonce. I decided not to follow them and filled in my basic profile info and uploaded a few pictures instead.
Once some pictures were uploaded my feed started to fill up. Here is a screen shot of my Nobody Famous page.
Here is what our Student Studio MySpace page looks like.
The thing I really like about it is the horizontal scroll. As the world is moving towards tablet computing, I feel like that could be a major plus. The overall feel of the profile page reminds me a lot of Pitch Engine, which is a site I just love for press releases. Overall, I think I will be using the new MySpace for Student Studio more than Nobody Famous, but I am interested to see
how if it grows.
