The new music-focused version of the social network Myspace has just opened to the public after having only been accessible to a few thousand invited guests. Under the guidance of its new co-owner Justin Timberlake, the site has been revamped and is offering new content. 

As Facebook and Twitter got more successful over the years, Myspace became dated. It has now been given a facelift and a new tone, its relaunch coinciding with the unveiling of Justin Timberlake's new track "Suit & Tie (feat. Jay Z)."

New functions such as creating playlists to share or the possibility of discovering new artists and events have been developed. But the first noteworthy difference is the site's new look, somewhere between Pinterest in the way frames are displayed and Windows 8 for its horizontal navigation. 

Apart from a completely new layout, the new Myspace has not been conceived as a closed network. You can sign up from your Facebook or Twitter accounts and share content from these networks. 

Myspace was sold for the modest sum of 35 million dollars to Specific Media Group and Justin Timberlake in 2011 after being purchased for about 580 million dollars by Rupert Murdoch six years earlier.
