Who killed MySpace?

I don't think I will ever forget the request by my friends, or me asking them, 'Hey, add me on MySpace" or "Do you have a MySpace?" Honestly, MySpace used to be the shiz. Going to a friends profile and listening to their favorite music, or the animated gif profile picture, or even the lame nicknames everyone had as their username, it was all so... so... AWESOME! What ever happened to that, part of it being the rise of popularity in Facebook, but that's not the whole story...

On friday, Rupert Murdoch admitted to killing MySpace. On twitter he posted 'Many questions and jokes about My Space.simple answer - we screwed up in every way possible, learned lots of valuable expensive lessons.' 

Back in 2005, when Facebook was open to the public gaining popularity, Murdoch was writing a big fat 580 million dollar check in order to buy MySpace, changing and altering it for the worst trying to compete with Facebook, eventually failing at the end. Last year Murdoch and his company sold the social network most of us once loved to Justin Timberlake for 35 million, with a 96% loss. 

...Maybe Justin can resurrect it?
