Mashable received the following confirmation from Myspace:
“We’re testing a new look and feel of our site among users and the response so far has been positive,” adding “As always, we’re interested in hearing feedback from our community as we roll out enhancements to the user experience and look forward to sharing more details with you in the coming weeks.”
Users are beginning to see the new profile pages as they slowly role out to the general MySpace population.
Users will notice several nice additions to their pages including a left-hand navigation which rolls in profile navigation below the users picture, a new focus on the Myspace “Stream” which is the companies answer to the Facebook newsfeed where users can see recent activity, and recent comments, while sharing content. Users can also follow their friends’ Twitter, Facebook and other social networking site profiles right from the site with a new follow option.
Most important is the fact that the UI is very much improved with a sleek look that rivals the sites competitors.
If you don’t see the new profile right away on your account don’t fret, only a limited number of users are receiving the update immediately with a larger site-wide launch being implemented after feedback is provided to Myspace by users.
So what do you think? Are the new features and sleek look enough to get you reconsidering using MySpace once again? Personally I want more features, not a makeover.
