Are all the page layouts the same? Its as simple as this: Bad design is non-intuitive and you dont know how to use it. Good design is intuitive and easy to use.

    36. 36. The Future?Myspace is on track to evolve into a digitaldestination for original shows, video content andmusic. At the same time, its social networkinginfrastructure can be used to launch sociallyactivated advertising campaigns -- meaning thatbrands can run campaigns with the hope thatMyspaces user base will take them viral.

    43. 43. Daria Musk:July 16th - “Word spread so fast that within minutes therewere so many hundreds of people from all over the world trying to get into the concert that Google’s top engineer Chee Chew and others began adjusting the tech on the fly. They daisy-chained the hangouts on their computers to work around the 10 person limit and get more people in!”
    44. 44. Daria Musk:“Audience” members also came up with an etiquette of“rotating” in and out of the 9 “front row seats” inside theHangout to let other people interact with me where welaughed, marveled at the technology and became friends as I played andsang through the night. It was my first time having an audience“lined up around the block” waiting to hear me perform, soI played for 6.5 hours straight!
    45. 45. Daria Musk:“In one night I toured the WORLD” On July 23rd she played her 2nd show for over 9000 Google+ uncapped the Hangout so that all could attend

    47. 47. Other Good Artist Uses • Mark HoppusNo stranger to hanging out, Blink 182ʹ′s bassist Mark Hoppus has participated ina few Hangouts with fans. Last summer, before Google+ Brand Pages werereleased, Hoppus revealed the name of the band’s sixth studio LP — which wasreleased in September 2011 — during a Hangout. The bassist also sharesexclusive content with fans, including behind the scenes photos from videoshoots, rehearsals, and his FUSEtv show — “Hoppus on Music.”Hoppus continues utilizing Google+ Hangouts as a way to communicate withfans. The video chats pull in many comments, mostly from people that missedthe opportunity to chat. While random chats are fun, it might be helpful to throwa few scheduled Hangouts into the mix so those that really want to participatecan be sure to make it.
    48. 48. Other Good Artist Uses • Will-i-AmWill.i.am made headlines when Google promoted the Black Eyed Peas Hangout on its front page — ahighly coveted piece of real estate. The artist hosts regular Hangouts where he and his friends engagefans in conversation and show off some dance moves. This particular Hangout On Air session wasdifferent because after about 20 minutes of chatting, he joined the rest of the Black Eyed Peas on stagefor a concert in New York City. Anyone participating had the best seat in the house as the camera wasonstage with the rest of the band.After the concert a viewer asked what he thought music will look like in the future. Will.i.am replied,“It looks like this. I think music in the future is people collaborating here on Google+ Hangout sessions.I think it’s shows like this…” He later went on to add that after concerts, artists should get off the stage,hop on Google+, and interact more with fans.In addition to participating in regular Hangouts, Will.i.am also uses the social network to share behindthe scenes photos and even released his new single — recorded with Mick Jagger and JLo — onGoogle+ before performing it at the American Music Awards the following night.
