So Myspace is all set to make a momentous comeback, and is already sending ripples in the world of social marketing. The new Myspace layout has a lot to offer to business owners, and even though the site is still in its beta version, there is a lot that you can do to start planning your profile and doing the groundwork for a great start. Myspace is branding itself as a “social entertainment network”, as it shall include a lot more than just social networking, including movies, TV shows, music, and a lot more!

To set up an account on Myspace, you shall first have to choose a category that you belong to, out of categories like brand, fan, comedian, etc. This selection shall be important in deciding your account type, but you shall be able to change it later on. The site is being closely integrated with other popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and shall make it possible to not only connect with friends you have on these networks, but also share your Myspace status updates on other social media sites.

A striking difference between the new Myspace and the older version is that this one has a much simpler interface. You shall notice this right from the get-go, with the process of updating your profile information being a lot easier and quicker. The home page brings together the best of everything, right from a cover photo to a section dedicated to your website’s link, which is great for businesses. The “manage” option in different profile types allows you to customize them as per your selected choice, and also easily upload files. The new Myspace is laying major focus on music and audio clips, and this just might be what makes it stand out in the social media sea.

Once you are done with setting up your profile, you shall be able to post updates of up to 150 characters and a photo. You shall also be able to customize your stream and add filters to it, to decide what kind of information you want to see in your stream. Since the website is still in the Beta version, you can only join it via someone who already has a profile on it. You can then connect your existing social media accounts to your Myspace page to add more connections.
