Bring Back The Original MySpace!

The original MySpace was the best there was, in my opinion. You were able to style your page to fit the way you wanted it too. You could make it look how YOU wanted it to look.


Now, MySpace is forcing everyone to convert to the new 3.0 version. BUT, there's tons of people out there who prefer the 1.0 version, or the 2.0 version. Why should we have to switch to something we don't like? Obviously, that's going to make people leave MySpace, which is exactly what's been happening.

MySpace isn't losing people because it's "old" or "not cool" anymore. It's because they keep making these ridiculous changes which they like to call "improvements" because they think it will make them more popular. It's not. It's making them lose more and more people. MySpace thinks they're getting better, but they're really getting worse, and losing their originality which was the core reason people liked them.

Ever since Tom sold MySpace, it's gone to complete shit. They keep trying to "make it better" by making it look like other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc,. Just like on Facebook, you can "like" stuff now. And people who AREN'T even on your friends list can "like" your stuff. It may just be me, but I think that's not right, at all. They've become so unoriginal.

They need to switch back, and give us all a choice in what version we want on our MySpace, whether it be the 1.0 version, 2.0 version, or 3.0 version, instead of forcing us to basically all have the same thing.

MySpace would easily gain back it's popularity if it were to just go back to the way they used to be, when they were original.

Thank you for reading. :]

  • cheyanne love how successful this petition is. I am also starting one on change.org! maybe we can help each other out and get things back to the way they use to be!

  • Anonymous I had alot of valuable messages on my old myspace.Memories of friends who have since past.I just would like to see the things I wrote to my friends and family and reminence.

  • Devon Look, I just want to be able to do 2 things:

    A: Read my old messages from back in the day & take a trip down memory lane I suppose.

    B: Read old comments people left on my profile.

    Maybe even be able to read those old bulletins & surveys everyone used to post too!

    Not trying to live in the past, but (at least for me) that was a good portion of my teenage life just pissed away, because of some dickhead in a suit decided it would be a good idea to flip the switch and delete everyone's personal writings & intellectual property.

    I'm sure its all backed up on some gigantic computer somewhere out in California too! It just costs a little bit of money to have someone dust it off and flip the on switch back on.

    But why would they want to do that of all things?! Make their long time / original users happy? LOL.. What for?! (Yes Justin Timberlake & Tim Vanderhook, I'm being sarcastic if you cant tell)

    But seriously, I'd probably pay a small fee if I could go back and read my stuff! Wouldn't have a smile on my face, but I'd still do it.. Call it www.OldMyspace.com. Instant hit, guaranteed!

    They could easily make more than their sad $20 million a year in advertising revenue! Hope you're reading this Specific Media LLC..


    I have the tiniest bit of hope that they will do the right thing sometime soon.

    But if they don't. Well, guess I'll see ya in hell then assholes!
