MySpace.com is an interaction design that has many good features and is in many ways very usable, but yet it also has its flaws.
The MySpace.com homepage makes it very obvious where users log in and of new released music and movies but there are many tabs, links and very poor advertisements as well. Unlike Facebook where the main page is very simple with log-in fields and a few links for account settings and help, MySpace is cluttered with ads and video links that users do not really need to know before they log in or use the site. It’s also not apparent to where new users go to sign up. There is just a small tab with fairly small text “Sign Up!”. There is also very small text “New to MySpace?” at the top. If MySpace wants to help new users, this text should be more obvious, but the links and ads on the main page are distracting.
To make it easier and simple, MySpace should probably make the home page one that doesn’t scroll. The main page should be simple for those new to the site. After having logged in, the important features of the site should be available.
