Called Portfolio, the new feature will allow users to promote 10 to 31 items of their original work, be it a photo, a video, an animated GIF or a new song, in one horizontal page. Portfolio will be available on Myspace desktop, and viewable on the mobile web and mobile app for iPhones iOS 6 and above.

Myspace photos affect risky behavior among teens

There really is something about peer pressure.  If your friends all jump off a bridge would you?

This article seems to say that is true.

MySpace Users Threaten to Sue

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/10173232/MySpace-users-threaten-to-sue-after-years-of-blogs-deleted.html

MySpace tells users that the blogs are safe but you can’t get them right now.  I think that MySpace should make an agreement with DropBox or one of its competitors.  It may choose to allow users to gather all blogs, pictures and other data and make it a seamless transfer.  MySpace could get a commission on each user that pays for extra storage.  That alone may raise the money and the good will they need to move forward with the free music player part of their strategy.

MySpace Deletes Your Last MySpace

As MySpace or Myspace has begun its reintroduction, it seems that they are removing old MySpace data as described here… https://www.askmyspace.com/t5/Messages-Blogs-Feedback/Where-is-all-of-my-old-Myspace-stuff/td-p/39165/page/10

It looks like the MySpace team is rewarding those who have stayed with them through all of this.  Or is this a warning to come back or lose your blogs and photos?

What will happen to Facebook or Google+ when it is not profitable to hold your photos?

Trending Justin Timberlake

MySpace looks like it is Justin Timberlake’s space and you are more than welcome to help him trend.  Can just Justine bring back MySpace?  Will people go back to MySpace when Facebook over monetizes its users?

When you look at the justinetimberlake.com page there is the last link to share back to MySpace.  Maybe that alone is making him trend.

Choose one?

Do you have to pick a MySpace.com?  Go to www.myspace.com and suddenly you have to make a choice… the Classic or the New MySpace.  Which do you chose?  Can you have both or neither?

What happens to someone who wants to live in the past and in the future?

LastMySpace!

Last MySpace?  Is there hope for the former leader of social media?  Will Justin Timberlake and the move to bands and video revive the brand?
