Myspace to Make Old Blogs Available for Download

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.

History
In June 2013, the “new” Myspace launched, and many old 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.

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:

    Not happy jan

  5. 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.

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

  12. i want my photos only..plz..

  13. My friend passed away and I turned to myspace to re-read our old messages exchanges.. All the messages are gone!! Myspace, what kind of shit is this!! I wanted to read these messages for comfort but they are now forever gone just like she is!! This is so upsetting.

  14. This new Myspace is stupid, I want all my old messages, friends, and pictures!!!!! Not just the ones I uploaded I want to see my friends pictures as well. Who the hell did all these changes, this is pointless and just pissing EVERYONE off!!!

  15. Very saddened today to realize MySpace has removed comments and blogs from people’s profiles. My mother passed away in June 2008 and it was one of the few places I could visit to think of her, listen to her favorite music and look through old pics. First her music got deleted…. That really bummed me out and then today (I know it’s old news and I’m way behind everyone here) I log on and realize all of the old comments we left for her and she had left for us are gone… :( I am absolutely heart broken. I would have gladly downloaded the pics and videos from her page, but I don’t have her log in info…. None of us do so it’s only a matter of time before we lose all of that as well I imagine. If there’s a way for me to download her old blog and recover all of the old info even though I’m not the “owner” of it… it would be so greatly appreciated.
