Jon Miller On The New MySpace: “It’s Rock And Roll”

Daniel Roth, of Fortune, asked News Corp. digital chief Jon Miller about MySpace at the Fortune Brainstorm conference in Aspen.  Miller appropriately joked “well it’s still around,” and then continued to say there are some exciting new things on the horizon.  According to Miller, “MySpace is pregnant with product.”  He says they want to “go younger” to get back to their core user base.  He also mentioned that MySpace was surprised by the fast growth of mobile usage, and they will be embracing it in the future.  

The “new MySpace” is set to launch sometime in the fall, he said.  When asked what MySpace will look like one year in the future, he said that we should expect a “very revitalized experience.”

Miller used the phrase “rock and roll” to describe MySpace’s future, but haven’t we been hearing that rock and roll is dead?
