MySpace to Shake up Its Layout...
MySpace will unveil next week a large-scale redesign that will alter major components of the social-networking site, like its home page, navigation scheme, search engine and video player.
On Wednesday, MySpace users will see the first phase of the redesign, which has been in the works for the past six months, according to the company.
MySpace, the world's most popular social-networking site, expects the changes to boost user engagement by making the site easier to navigate.
MySpace is routinely criticized by users and observers for a layout that many consider visually strident and messy. Its members have many options to alter their profile pages, such as changing their background color, adding hyperactive animations, using fonts of many sizes and colors and plastering them with videos and photo slideshows.
