MySpace The Comeback Kid of 2014?

I was reading an article on socialmediatoday.com about the hottest social media sites in 2014.  Obviously your usual contenders, Twitter, Vine and Pinterest were mentioned.  I was not surprised about the mention of SnapChat being a contender in the upcoming year considering its continued rise to popularity.  If you were not aware, Facebook tried to buy SnapChat for 3 BILLION dollars, but they turned them down.  Obviously they see an opportunity with this app and I am excited to see what is to come in regards to Snapchat.

I am not surprised those sites were mentioned because majority of smartphone users have either used these apps or heard of them.  I was a little shocked when I read that MySpace is a site that we should look out for in 2014.  Considering everyone looks at MySpace like that cousin you just ignore because they never have anything relevant to say and they are just there.  They did try to relaunch with the help of Justin Timberlake since he has a share in MySpace.  The buzz was very short lived and then you did not hear about MySpace that much after that.  “MySpace went through several makeovers and with its new iPhone app that allows consumers to connect with others, share private messages and enjoy a customized and personalized radio station tailored to suit their taste – MySpace is ready to compete in 2014.”-Mark Scott, Doc Marketing 

It is hard to say whether this will work out for them, but I will definitely keep an eye out for the once popular musical hub.  What are your thoughts? Will you be checking out the new MySpace?
