Let me just say that mtvmusic.com is awesome! I spent a couple hours last night playing around with it. What makes it so great? Well, for the first time in a while, MTV did something to live up to their name. MTV Music is a repository of all their music videos, or at least a lot of their videos.
Last night I watched the new Britney Spears video, some classic Weezer stuff, Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” where Christopher Walken dances all over a hotel lobby, and that freaky Aphex Twin video I remembered from my high school days.
In addition to videos, MTV has added a social networking aspect to their site. It closely resembles Facebook in look, but provides a place for you to display your favorite videos, and comments you’ve left throughout the site. It’s a pretty good execution, and a decent social networking platform I just wish it could have been incorporated with Facebook, or YouTube. How many social networks does one person need to belong to? If anything that would be my only criticism of the site. Why another social network?
All in all, I applaud MTV for their efforts. I hope MTV Music is wildly successful. I plan to spend a lot of time with it. You should check it out too. You don’t even have to join the social networking part to view the videos.
