There was a time when Myspace was the social network we all went to to express ourselves, meet people and upload our musical creations. The social network fell into oblivion and with it millions of profiles.
Many of us spend a lot of hours modifying the page code to personalize our profile, uploading hundreds of songs and images. All that content has disappeared forever, and Myspace itself has been in charge of confirming it.

“There is no way to recover lost data”
A few hours ago, a Reddit post warned that the platform had lost all content uploaded between 2003 and 2015. It happened last year, when suddenly the songs uploaded during that time could no longer be played.
At the time, the company said they had identified this bug and promised they would fix it. A few months have passed and Myspace has finally confirmed (responding to an email from a user) that they have lost all these files:
As we can see, the platform recognizes that “it is true” and that it all happened when they tried to do a migration of these files while trying to transfer them to their new web page.
For those who have any hope of recovering these files, Myspace makes it very clear at the end of its answer: “there is no way to recover the lost data”.
Just over a decade ago it was hard to imagine that a platform as solid as Myspace would end up this way. History does not stop repeating itself and it is likely that in the near future this will happen again to platforms such as Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook.
