"Who am I to say I want you back? When you were never mine to give away."
The lyrics that accompanies the promotional video reinforces the company's positioning. Having sold for US$580 million to News Corporation in 2005, the 9 year old business (founded in 2003) has reinvented itself which what can only be described as a "beautiful" looking website. Aesthetically, it has WINNER all over it, but the proof will be in how they not only attract their followers but keep them.
Scoring Justin Timberlake, an early investor into the comeback is of course clever marketing because after all, he is the "comeback king" and is considered one of the coolest and sexiest people on the planet. If brand association is anything to go by, the public should be in for something very special.

The relaunch of Myspace is very impressive although will it be successful in attracting new or its previous social media users? Personally I doubt it.
The majority of my friends use Facebook. Many of them migrated from the original low functioning Myspace.
I believe that Facebook’s strengths lie in its ability to innovate and integrate with other social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram. So even though these new sites are gaining popularity, people are using them in conjunction with Facebook.
If Facebook can continue to update its features then it will remain as number 1… for now!
