An Easier Way To Navigate A Custom Profile

crazy frogI've seen some pretty cool looking profiles. People have really figured out how to trick out their profile to the point that they look nothing like the default layout. With all the CSS hackery that can be done on a myspace layout, it can be very difficult to find the standard links such as view profile, blog, videos, add to friends, favorites, etc... Enter MyspaceHax. MyspaceHax is a script that you can use to always display the standard profile links at the bottom of the page. It works with firefox's greasemonkey extension. Check it out!

Share Your Music With TuneFeed

I've been messing around with TuneFeed lately and I'm very impressed how easy TuneFeed makes it to share your mp3 and other music files. All you have to do is upload the files to TuneFeed, create a playlist, and copy a little bit of script into your layout and voila! You can share all of your favorite mp3s on your myspace profile with TuneFeed. The player that it embeds in your profile is nice looking and easy to use. It also supports RSS so your syndicatoin friends can just subscribe to your tune feed and receive updates when you add music. Check it out!

Another Great Myspace Tracker

the bounty hunterMSTracker is another great myspace tracker. Its cool because it allows you to display stats about your profile visitors on your profile. It even displays your visitors' avatar so that you can see a picture of your visitors. This should be a feature that myspace offers by default and I would not be suprised if they eventually do offer something like it. Check it out! (via widgetoko)

On another note, many of us have sort of a love hate relationship with Myspace. If you fall into this category, here is a shirt you must have!

Download Any Song On Myspace Using XML

Tech Recipes has posted another hack to download any song on Myspace. It requires a little XML trickery, but works quite well for downloading streaming music on myspace in mp3 format. Here is a more automated approach to the same technique which worked intermitently for me. I'm sure that eventually Myspace will block this hack, but for now it works great! This is a great way to find mp3s to put on your new iPod Nano.

Customyzer Myspace Layout Editor

Customyzer
Customyzer is a super slick myspace layout editor. It allows you to customize various visual aspects of your profile including backgrounds and fonts and even has a way to encorporate add ons into your profile. Customyzer has a "classic editor" and a "interactive editor". The interface for the interactive editor is what sets Customyzer apart from the five gazillion other layout editors out there. It is easy to use, providing an interactive (see WYSIWYG) view of your profile. Customyzer is just starting out and I'm excited to see where they take it. My wishlist for Cusomyzer is more add ons and more control over the behaviour and positioning of the various profile components (i.e. friends list, messages, etc...). Check it out!

Broadtexter Connects Musicians With Fans


Broadtexter has created a widget for Myspace that musicians can post on their profile allowing fans to sign up for text message alerts. Musicians can then broadcast alerts to their fans from a cell phone. This would be an invaluable tool for a band that is out on the road touring to stay connected to their fan base. It can be a full time job for musicians to stay connected with their fans on MySpace. All the networking and adding of friends, blogging and bulletin posting can be extremely time consuming. Here is the info from Broadtexter's website:


Sometimes you can't get to a computer when you're on the road. Broadtexter allows you to send REGIONALIZED text alerts right from your mobile phone (and your fans NEVER see your phone number)!

If your average concert ticket is $8, you only need Broadtexter text alerts to bring in 2 additional fans per month to your shows and this service pays for itself.
Customizing the Fan Module is so easy (view examples). We're developing a variety of module styles so check back frequently (you'll be able to switch styles at any time...no muss, no fuss!).

Send alerts to all your fans at one time!...WAY easier than sending 10-at-a-time from your phone (and of course, you'd have to collect all your fan's mobile numbers manually AND give away your mobile number).

MORE: View all your subscriber data by region, choose to receive e-mails when new fans subscribe, and receive subscriber stats anytime right on your mobile phone...

Cool Text Generator



I'm such a sucker for a good text generator. Its not what you say but how you say it! I found this really cool sign generator for myspace that generates text from flickr photographs of letters. It reminds me of a digital version of a ransom note. Check out out!

MySpace Browser for Mac OS X

This one is for my fellow Mac fans out there. Spyder is a newly released Myspace browser written for Mac OS X 10.4. I've been playing around with the trial and it looks like an app with huge potential. It makes it very easy to access all of your friends and it caches all of their avatars which makes it 100 times faster than searching through your friends on Myspace. Spyder also makes it very easy to send messages and add people to your friends list. You can even manage multiple myspace accounts with Spyder.



The only thing that I'd change about it is that I'd lower the price which is currently $40. On the other hand, the trial will get you pretty far. I wouldn't be suprised if Spyder becomes an all in one social browsing application that manages your accounts on many different social apps. Here is the info from Spyder's website:

Spyder makes it easy to keep in touch with your friends or fan-base by message or comment. Add as many friends as you want, Spyder allows you to send friend requests too.

Organize your friends or other users the way you want. Use the friends view to quickly scan for users by picture if your better at faces not names.

Spyder also helps you manage all your accounts, whether you have just a personal account or an additional band or business account you can easily switch between your different accounts in Spyder. And for people that remember faces better than names Spyder downloads users pictures automatically.

Browse Myspace Privately

browzar logo
Sometimes its necessary to be a little discreet when browsing myspace. You don't always want the world to know how much time you are spending or what profiles you are looking at on myspace. Some people really like to snoop, checking your browsing history and other bits of information that most browsers keep scary logs of. Well I found this great new browser called Browzar that caches nothing and keeps all the information about the sites you browse with it completely private. It's super lightweight (only 264 kb) and you don't have to install it to use it.

browzar screenshot

Here is the information from Browzar's website:

With Browzar you can search and surf the web without leaving any visible trace on the computer you are using.

Browzar is free, it only takes seconds to download and you don’t even need to install it, so you can download Browzar time and time again, whenever and wherever you need it to protect your privacy.

* No installation. Just click ‘run’ and go
* No registration required

The freedom to surf the web with complete privacy
Browzar doesn’t do web cache, web history, cookies or auto-complete. We promise that your business stays your business.

The freedom to use it wherever you are
Browzar only takes seconds to download. Use it at home, at your friend’s, at work, in an Internet café, in fact anywhere you’ve got a computer and an internet connection.

The freedom to search for whatever you want
Browzar doesn’t remember what you search for and won’t embarrassingly auto-complete what you’ve searched for in the past.

The freedom to use it whenever you want
Using Browzar doesn’t involve commitment. Use it once a year, once a week or everyday, it’s up to you. It's free to download and use Browzar as many times as you like.
