It's been a long time coming, but MySpace gets its big redesign today, albeit in beta form. The site is being refocused as a 'social entertainment' destination rather than a social networking service, with music, games and video discovery brought to the fore. We wrote about the new logo a few weeks back – it seems the site may now be known as Myspace rather than MySpace (no capital 'S') too. The ability to import from and export to Facebook and Twitter is also a high-profile part of the new site, while the overall design is cleaner and more attractive, although still a contrast to Facebook's white space. However, MySpace was embarrassed on the eve of its launch when a public Google Doc was discovered with all the site's traffic and engagement stats – according to TechCrunch, whoever uploaded it forgot to toggle the 'private' setting.
