MySpace Profile Pages Get a Redesign

MySpace has launched its new layout and user experience, with a total redesign of the MySpace profile look and feel.

The layout is much cleaner and easier to look at, and use. It breaks down a MySpace page into the tried and true categories of profile, photos, videos, playlists, blog, stream, and friends, rather than trying to put most of those all on the same page. All of these options are in a navigation tool on the left-hand side of the page.

"We're testing a new look and feel of our site among users and the response so far has been positive. 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," said a MySpace spokesperson when speaking to Mashable.

 

Take the Spacelab MySpace poll to tell us what you think:

 



Sean Percival, vice president of online marketing, has the new look on his page. It's clean and stark and black and white. It takes a few cues from Facebook, but also branches off into it's own MySpace territory. It's an improvement on MySpace 1.0 and MySpace 2.0.

They're also opening up to other social networks, allowing users to let visitors share posts on their own preferred networks, like Facebook, Twitter, Delicious and lots of others. Users can also integrate their post from other networks into their MySpace pages, like Sean has done with his Twitter page.

This looks to be a limited release for MySpace, in an attempt to gather information from users and take it back to the digital drawing board before launching it sitewide on the whole MySpace site. No word yet on customization options.

So is the last attempt for MySpace, or is it already over and done with?

To complicate the whole thing further, GigaOm takes a look at the breakdown between MySpace and Facebook and how the site populations show a split between minority and white audiences. An interesting read.
