Last week, we asked you which dead or long-ignored website you want dusted off and brought back to life. You answered the call—all 433 of you who commented—and the result was a tour of the best sites of the 90s and early 2000s. Here are the seven sites you miss the most. Let's surf the web of nostalgia.
Facebook's look-back videos are a delightful—if sentimental—look at the last few years of your social media existence. But that's because you've had a great decade! What about the less fortunate? What would, say, MySpace's look back video be? Oh, right, it would be hilarious.
The new Myspace, risen from the social media ashes like some kind of a semi-relevant phoenix from the 00s, has already hit its first snafu. It turns out that the site—totally centered around music—might not have secured the right rights. And there's a whole army of small record labels who aren't pleased.
Graph Search, which we're going to call Facebook search from here on out because nobody wants to read or write "Graph Search," is a dramatic new way to browse Facebook. But its implications spill over its rivals—which companies lose the most?
After six months of beta testing, the new MySpace is finally opening its doors to the public: now, anyone who wants an account can trot over to the site and sign up.
MySpace is back, again. But this time, it realizes how horrible it used to be—and almost everything old is gone. It's a totally fresh start. Unfortunately, New MySpace is like Old MySpace in one very important way: It's still stupid.
In a hilarious court ruling, Apple got denied a trademark on its orange music icon (the one that's on iOS devices) because trademark judges said consumers might confuse the logo with one owned by MySpace. Hah!
Myspace, that ancient social networking dinosaur, is back with a new coat of paint. And get ready for this: it looks kind of neat. The new format has some pretty clear Pinterest and Tumblr influence, and also looks like it'll be doubling down on the music aspect of the Myspace world, maybe giving Spotify's social…
The tech world is full of flops. This ain't them; some of these companies and their products were monstrously successful for a time; others never even had the high expectations and hype required for something to earn the title "flop".
Media baron, professional evil white guy archetype, and technologist Rupert Murdoch recently took to Twitter regarding his company's historically awful purchase of MySpace. So, what they do wrong? Literally everything.
When a couple goes on Maury aka the most electrifying daytime talk show on television to prove who's the father of a baby, it's usually a sordid tale of lying, cheating and deceit. But no story can ever get better than this: Joe, the alleged baby daddy, accuses Tom from freaking MySpace of being the real father of…
At at a Tuesday event, Myspace and new owner Specific Media will detail plans to revive the dying social network. According to a document leaked to AllThingsD, the key to a successful resurrection will be music, music, and more music.
If a student chooses to represent his/herself as a whorebag, that's no business of their school, a federal judge has decided. This follows two teenage girls who posted slutty photos on MySpace and were dealt with aggressively by their school.
In the midst of the ongoing violence in London and after what must be boatloads of crimes stemming from online activity, the NYPD has formed a unit dedicated to sifting through Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace for information on dangerous activity.
Happy Birthday, Interwebz! How far you've come. See, if the Internet drew its first breath in the fall of 1969, it took its first steps toward its potential on August 6, 1991. Took awhile there. But it was this first step that was just the beginning.
MySpace was just sold like a GameCube on Craigslist, snatched up by a no-name advertising firm (and Justin Timberlake?) for less than a tenth of what NewsCorp bought it for in '05. But it wasn't always a disaster. Let's reminisce.
Let's cut to the obvious irony of this news: in The Social Network, Justin Timberlake played a web-savvy entrepreneur who kickstarted a unfathomably successful... social network. But in real life, Justin Timberlake just bought part of MySpace! Ha ha ha.
Twitter may have the exclusive status of being built into iOS for sharing purposes, but that doesn't mean Apple's ignoring Facebook. In addition to Twitter handles, Contacts in iOS5 has spots for Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, and totally inexplicably, MySpace. [AllThingsD]
