History

When the new Myspace launched earlier this year, previous users were outraged to find that their old data had been removed. Users were initially given the opportunity to retrieve old Myspace photos, and Myspace has announced a tool which will allow the download of old blogs by previous users.

In June 2013, the “new” Myspace launched, and many existing Myspace users were surprised to find that their old profiles were wiped clean.

The powers at Myspace allowed previous users to retrieve their old pictures (though some have claimed that their method doesn’t work). Old blogs, private messages, videos, comments, posts, backgrounds, and games were all removed with no way to get them back.

Announcements

Following months of user complaints, Myspace finally updated their response to the question “Where is all of my old Myspace stuff?” with the following:

Thank you everyone for your feedback regarding your classic Myspace blogs. We understand that this information is very important to you and apologize for not providing an answer sooner. Please understand that your blogs have not been deleted. Your content is safe and we have been discussing the best ways possible to provide you your blogs.

In August 2013, they issued another update:

We’re creating an export tool that will allow you the opportunity to download a copy of your blogs. The first step to recovering your blogs is to submit a request. To learn more about submitting your request, please visit Your Classic Myspace Blogs.

Download Tool

There has been an announcement that a new tool to download old Myspace blogs will be implemented in the first week of September. Below is a screen shot of how the tool will look once it is available to you:

    It’s a shot in the dark, but you could try visiting the Wayback Machine (http://archive.org/web/) and typing your old Myspace address in there. It may yield a little more info.

    I am dying to find old pictures of me now I can’t freaken find them -.-

  • Catherine

    The most unprofessional outfit with no integrity, and now they have the cheek to ask us how they could make our blogging experience better?! Not deleting everything we had ever written over night with no warning perhaps, and then doing some quickly to solve the problem, rather than this long, slow, increasingly frustrating, drawn out experience of empty words. Give us an ETA on our blog return Myspace, I cannot wait to be rid of you forever.
