Myspace was the largest social networking site in the world from 2005 to 2009, and it once hosted more than 50 million songs from 14 million artists, but it has just lost all of that content today, due to a server migration issue. That’s right, every piece of music uploaded between 2003-15 was lost, which means all links to those tracks no longer work. “As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your back up copies. If you would like more information, please contact our Data Protection Officer, Dr. Jana Jentzsch,” said the company.

“The banner announcement, which has now been removed, was rather brief and left plenty of room for question. You won’t find answers from MySpace on Twitter, as the company hasn’t tweeted since 2017, and its last official press release is dated 2015. MySpace did offer the email address of its Data Protection Officer ([email protected]), for anyone seeking more information,” reports Engadget.
