MySpace has redesigned its website, adding My Radio–a music streaming platform with more than 53 million songs.
Authors can use this new tool to build their own customized radio stations. AppNewser has all the details:
MySpace plans to differentiate itself with personalized radio stations. Instead of using an algorithm to create radio stations for an artist based on similar music like other sites, MySpace lets artists personally program radio stations with what they are listening to. It’s more like artist as a DJ, than a recommendation based on keywords. At launch, MySpace has 25 programmed radio stations from artists including Snoop Dogg, Steve Angello and Justin Timberlake. It’s not just for established artists. In the name of social media, anyone can make a station. Emerging indie bands, radio DJs, or just your everyday music fan.
