Myspace, one of the leaders in social networking, has hit a record of
over 50 million users. The problem with so many users is that creativity
often runs low. Mass-produced Myspace layouts can be seen everywhere on
Myspace- and finding an original profile has become something of a
phenomenon.

The main problem with getting new Myspace profiles is that everyone else
has already likely found and used one of the hundreds that are available
all over the internet. The solution that many people seek comes in the
form of Myspace layout generators. These Myspace layout generators allow
users to create and edit profile colors, images, and even add special
items such as glitter text. This allows those who have little experience
with HTML or CSS create a professional looking profile, but it still
takes much more work than simply copying and pasting a premade layout.

For those who are a little more adept in technical skills, editing the
HTML and CSS directly will give the most unique Myspace layout available.
CSS basically controls how certain things are displayed- which means
text, links, font decorations, and much more. The HTML side of coding
allows users to input images, control text styles and decorations that
the CSS code specifies, and can even put videos or music players into a
profile. This method takes a lot more time to edit and complete, but it
will give the best overall unique look for a Myspace layout.

The number one giveaway that users have used a pre-made Myspace layout is
the ads that are left behind from the Myspace layout websites. Most
Myspace layout providers put ads and images in the layout code that link
back to their website. Users can edit this out, usually by finding the
link they leave behind, which will start with and then be followed by a
link to a website. This is a common giveaway that a user’s profile is
just one of the thousands that looks like every other un-creative
profile.

Of course, creativity isn’t always necessary. Having a creative Myspace
layout is simply a means of communicating to viewers who you are and what
you do. For businesses or organizations, having a creative layout is
mandatory to running a successful Myspace business. For instance, record
labels will definitely not want to use a branded layout- musicians would
likely think that they aren’t serious enough to take the time and make
their own. This can not only hurt business through lack of dedication,
but also through loss of business to competitors that do have creative
Myspace layout.

The Myspace layout is the next personal homepage of the current
generation. Clearly, the 1990’s brought a lot of innovation into the web
design scene. Since then, the ease of using Myspace has made a new kind
of personal homepage- one complete with a blog, music, pictures, and
networking capabilities. The definition of a personal webpage means that
the content is unique- not copied. Likewise, those who use Myspace to
define themselves among friends will want to customize Myspace layouts as
much as possible- as it is likely the majority of the other 50 million
users of simply copied and pasted a Myspace layout for their own personal
use.
