MySpace Is Trying to Win You Back…With Your Embarrassing Photos

By Hanssie on June 2nd 2014

On my to do list today: delete old embarrassing MySpace photos ASAP.

Remember when MySpace was a thing? You know, in the time before Mark Zuckerburg crushed it with a little social media site called Facebook? MySpace…that place you housed your sparkly inspirational GIF quotes, your collection of gnome sightings and of course, your embarrassing photos that seemed like a good idea at the time. No, you don’t remember?

Well, MySpace is here to remind you that 1) yes, it still exists 2) they still have embarrassing photos of you.

The almost defunct social network, after overhauling their site in January 2013, has found a way to entice users back to the site. MySpace has been emailing users with 1-2 old photos of themselves with the line: The good, the rad and the what were you thinking…” and a link to their MySpace profile.

Translation: You better figure out your old login info and delete those pictures before your boss/significant other/kids stumble upon them.

A clever marketing ploy, if you ask me. Of their 15 billion photos, there are bound to be some awkward doozies that you don’t want people to see. There’s no word on how the strategy is working for them, but I know that I’ll be logging in right after I post this article. But honestly, can anything really ever be deleted from the Internet? Oh, I hope so…

Happy Monday!

    I shut my MySpace account down about five years ago, only to get an email one day a couple of years later about my account. So I went back to MySpace, logged in, and sure enough, my profile was still active. Not only that, but they had scanned my “about me” information and signed me up for several news updates about things like Ashton Kutcher and the Black Eyed Peas. Never mind that my profile was making jokes about Kutcher and BEP. I had to send them several angry emails to finally get my account removed.

      Oh no. Hopefully it’ll be easier for me to delete my account. Sneaky…
