MySpace gets makeover, more Facebookish

It may be too late to catch up with Facebook, but MySpace is trying with a new page design it announced today, giving users a preview of a makeover that takes effect on Monday.

The new page “prominently displays the activity stream and simplifies the content discovery experience,” MySpace said in the announcement.

MySpace is owned by News Corp. and based in the Los Angeles area but has a big engineering office in Seattle.

A new “My Stuff” module provides access to photos, videos and music from users’ homepages and recommendations have been combined into a single module.

Also being updated are the site’s alerts system and address book. Here it is, with MySpace annotations:
