If MySpace have started all over again, it might have been better. For me, looking at many old bandprofiles that havent been updated for years, is worse than not having those accounts available. They should've started on a fresh.

Lets not forget that a large amount of people had many photos and emails stored on what they thought were a safe place. I kept all my old emails and they were personal and now I have lost them forever. There are photos that I cannot retrieve and as long as Myspace strays in its current format they will struggle to get the majority of the users back. There was a rumour that they were going to allow users access to thier old mail and profiles but that appears to have fizzled out. I do not trust Justin Timberlake to stick by his word and give everyone access to thier old stuff. They say it has not been delted...just resatricted. If that is the case. throw the switch and let us have all our personal stuff back!

I, JaaDFire was considering adding more music to Myspace but is crazy, useless to put effort into a dead platform. I keep with my JaaDFire Facebookpage and JaaDFire Twitter page Those make sense for me and great article.

Im. Glad i didnt have anything personal on there. For if i did and it got deleted or even restricted, i think i would go hunting...loost my kids, if they deleted my kids pictures and its all i had... Well, whats the saying "dont pick on a man that has nothing left to loose?"

Didn't this article get run before? :)

I still have the same amount of connections as before, they just aren't all as active.

If you got paid to write this drivel, please I hope you get fired and they hire me, since I should get paid for the lousy job you didn't do!

I had a band account. I am an unsigned musician who release my own albums, have no real fans, but I had many email correspondents to some of my idols who are world famous through the myspace messages, I even had comments from them on my channel telling me they enjoyed the music which weren't bots or publicists, they were the actual band members. All these were deleted. I was in shock that they did that. That was the end of me using myspace. All my messages. No way to get them back or export them.
