Hmm...Good luck with that

In the most stunningly perfect example of "too little, too late" we've ever seen, Myspace has just announced a brand new redesigned sites and new services to compete with Facebook. We pretty much think that Internet users have already voted for Facebook, though.

The first part of Myspace's new initiative is a brand new website, one that looks more like a hip news site than a social networking site. It's designed to show users the most recent relevant content throughout Myspace and update it in real-time. It's also a lot cleaner than the site's previous look, which was very muddled and messy.

One thing Myspace has sort of managed to attain is a presence for artists to showcase their work. There's no real similar service on Facebook, so Myspace will be pimping that out a bit more, making the ability to view user-generated music, video, and art content more seamless.

Additionally, there will be a greater focus on linking users together based on interests - not on mutual friends like Facebook does. In other words, it looks like Myspace is trying to be more like a social networking site for strangers to connect virtually. Facebook will remain the top destination for people to stay in touch with other people they actually know in real life.

"This marks the beginning of an exciting turning point for Myspace. Our new strategy expands on Myspace’s existing strengths - a deep understanding of social, a wealth of entertainment content and the ability to surface emerging cultural trends in real time through our users," said Myspace CEO Mike Jones.

Myspace has obviously been obliterated by Facebook and it's almost a miracle that it even still exists. It did briefly come back into the spotlight during all the debacles over Facebook privacy concerns, with Myspace coming out of the dark to say it actually cared about user privacy. For the most part, though, people have written it off.

You have to admire its persistence, though.
