Reclaiming MySpace's lost glory

Hollywood superstar Justin Timberlake is keen to revive the battered social media brand but it will take more than celebrity hype to bring MySpace back.

While Justin Timberlake may have been hugely successful in bringing sexy back, he is now attempting to bring sexy back to Myspace and make it relevant in a Facebook world. Timberlake bought MySpace with Specific Media last year from News Corp. for just $35 million (a real bargain basement price considering News Corp. had paid $580 million for MySpace just six years earlier). At the time, Timberlake had declared that there was a need for a place where fans can go to interact with their favourite entertainers, listen to music, watch videos, share and discover cool stuff and just connect. 

One billion Facebook users will probably tell you that they already have that place.
